Australia recorded no COVID-19-related deaths on Thursday and Friday

It's the first time in three months that the country has gone two days without a virus-related death.

The number of new cases also is down, with just 16 reported in 24 hours.

While that's major progress, the country still says a vaccine rollout is likely a year away and border closures could last into late 2021.
