ScottMorrisonMP u in Hawaii bro?

the government should stop all flights coming and going to China

Stop flights coming into Australia!! Australians have enough to deal with right now

OldGreyRabbit Last plane out of China should never landed in Sydney some leaflets passengers immediate Quarantined

Send them all back

Great job ScottMorrisonMP, you have shown us how incompetent competent you are of running this country. All you had to do is to stop the flights coming in. Your first duty as a leader of a country is to look after your people first!

Stop all flight to Australia and test every one before they get on plains. Send Australian biologist to keep up standards. No test no flying. Plains and all.

The media is going to jump all over this and justify their job for a little while.

It had to happen

So many Chinese that live here go between the two countries regular, and Chinese New year coming up, so expect more cases

Look at where all this has started, that place is constantly screwing up the world.

9NewsSyd This is what u get when u let infected people from a place that’s been quarenteened into your country.Which idiot let this happen?

Welcome to 2020.

That sux. Oh well it was only a matter of time that was going to occur.

Coz it’s pretty hard to stop flights entering our country 🙄🙄🙄

Just the start of thousands. Well done to the government for no control of our borders again.

And so it begins

9NewsSyd Yet another crisis for Australia to deal with...

Plenty more to go before unusual . 100 died from flu right here in Australia last year . 59.000 caught flu . Happens every year. It’s called getting sick .
