Abstract

[Extract] Pandemic responses across the world have been highly reactive. However, there remain only three strategic options to managing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19): mitigation, suppression and elimination. With the promise of efficacious new vaccines, mitigation is appropriately not considered as part of Australia's national strategy. However, our stated goal of achieving "no community transmission" remains poorly defined and risks missing important distinctions between elimination and suppression.
