CN LIVE! S2E10 - PANDEMIC DOWN UNDER
Plenty of people in Europe and the US are wondering why Australia has so far been able to escape the same devastation of the Coronavirus pandemic that they have experienced. While the US moves towards 2 million infections and has surpassed 105,000 dead, Australia has only had 7204 cases, resulting in just 103 deaths. It didn't necessarily come easily to Australia, and the pandemic has seriously undermined relations with its biggest trading partner.
