Camelia after flowering got disease on leaves

Camelia japonica one year old flowered for the first time but afterwards contracted this disease on some of the leaves which then dropped off. We live in Canberra and have had a rather wet winter and spring (see photo). Please advise.

Looks like it could be Camellia virus, unfortunately there is no cure but prune the affected leaves and branches off. Please read more about the disease from he following link:
