Meanwhile, COVID-19 cases in India have dropped from a peak of more than 400,000 daily cases.

New South Wales residents aged between 40 and 49 could receive a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at a new purpose-built hub in Sydney within weeks.

A record number of COVID-19 vaccines are expected to be distributed across Australia this week.

Finance Minister Simon Birmingham says this year's federal budget will include substantial investment in aged care, but admits it won't solve all of the challenges faced by the sector.
