Aus seems to be going with Option 2Ron2K wrote:
- Full national lockdown: shutdown freedom of movement within the country and close national (and even state) borders. Chosen by New Zealand, China, Hong Kong Taiwan, and now South Africa too.
- Partial lockdown relying on social distancing and mass testing, isolation and contact tracing to prevent the rapid spread of COVID-19: the Singapore and South Korea model.

My wife works at the local hospital and they have only had 3 cases there so far, but they are bracing for impact...
