Kudos to Australia!
April 27, 2020: Here's a Thom Hartmann segment with good news about Australia!
The modern founding Horoscope of Australia that I use comes from Nicholas Campion's The Book of World Horoscopes, chart #013, based on the continent's British colonization which began on January 26, 1788 Sydney "around dawn" (5:21 LMT):
Ascendant 6AQ00; Sun 5AQ36; Moon 13Vir05 (Virgo, sign of Health). One chart factor particularly of interest in light of current events and contagion is Australia's Mercury @23Cap48 which received the harsh, fanatical energies of the January 12, 2020 Saturn-Pluto Conjunction, a planetary pair with a potential for "mass murder." Adding Australia's Mercury to Saturn-Pluto suggests potential pictures of 'a desire to solve difficult problems, an urge to do research work, mental shrewdness toward efforts to meet goals, deep study, and/or stark realism' (Ebertin, Tyl, Munkasey).
Australia's Air-Earth Sun AQ-Moon Virgo blend of conscious and unconscious energies tends toward rationality, detailed research--medical or otherwise--and toward doing what needs to be done.
So apparently that's what they did.
