The national death toll for cases linked to COVID-19 has risen to 44 overnight following 1 VIC and 2 NSW fatalities. 

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced that her government is setting aside $35million for research into a vaccine, stating:

"Until we find a vaccine, we all have to live with this virus. And no matter what restrictions there are in the future, no matter what restrictions are potentially eased in the future - until a vaccine is found, social distancing is a way of life now; that is the new normal."

Federal Parliament will sit tomorrow to pass legislation for the JobKeeper allowance, which will pay some workers $1,500 / fortnight.
