Life during the pandemic has looked different for most people. Different countries around the world have adjusted practices and lifestyles to adapt to the impacts of COVID-19. Australians have been living a somewhat normal lifestyle with in-person events and regular work environments remaining in place.
Australia hasn’t seen nearly as many COVID-19 cases or deaths as the United States. The Australian government reports 29,801 cases and 910 deaths from the virus. Officials attribute those numbers to tight border control and strict quarantines.
