Australia has effectively eliminated COVID-19 in some parts of the country, its chief medical officer said on June 12.

Australia has recorded 38 cases of the novel coronavirus over last week, Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy told reporters in Canberra. More than half them are travellers returning from overseas and already quarantined in hotels.
