Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka played in front of 4,000 people in Adelaide, Australia for the Australian Open on Friday.

Fans were sitting side-by-side with no social distancing protocols or mask requirements in place because Australia hasn’t reported a positive case of COVID-19 in nearly two weeks, according to U.S. News and World Report.

Australia’s Health Minister Greg Hunt accredits medical professionals, public health teams, and the citizens of Australia for eliminating the Coronavirus.

That’s a testament to the work of our medical professionals, our public health teams, but Australians everywhere for the way in which they’ve observed the distancing requirements, the way they have protected each other, the way that they’ve come out for testing, with 12.88 million tests conducted in Australia on the latest advice that I have. All of these things have helped keep Australia safe.

Serena Williams was happy to address the crowd and let them know what a pleasure it was to play for them.

We haven’t played in front of a crowd in over a year, so, it’s been a really long time. So, this is really cool and then for having us and trusting us with your laws was great. We’re so happy just to be here. It’s worth it. ” Williams told the crowd.

I kind of forgot the question because I’m more so excited to say thanks.

Meanwhile back in the U.S. our Coronavirus cases and deaths are increasing every day.

Australia has shown us the way so hopefully President Joe Biden and our health advisors can follow Australia’s model.

Do you think we will eradicate the Coronavirus in the U.S. by 2022?
