ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “ACT records its highest ever number of daily COVID-19 cases and two more deaths | ABC News” – below is their description.

It should have been a day of relief for Canberrans with more restrictions eased, but instead the ACT has recorded its highest ever number of daily cases since the pandemic began.

52 new infections were recorded with at least 31 infectious in the community.

And although the capital has reached a major vaccination milestone with 95% of Canberrans over 16 receiving their first dose, authorities fear complacency could mean more tough days are ahead.
