In retail services, there’s been a 1 per cent decline and 146,000 jobs. Just under 120,000 in construction jobs, and around 108,000 in arts and recreation services jobs.The broader remaining industries have seen around a 4 per cent fall on GDP but that has translated proportionally to fewer lost jobs.

Open parliament. “Working from home” is not working for you If it’s such an economic cost it’s a wonder they allow school holidays.

Many schools still haven't received the soap or hand sanitizer they were promised. Are staff & students going to have their temperatures tested? How are staff going to social distance from each other in tiny staffrooms & bathrooms? Whats the plan & where are the details? 'he warns re-opening schools is crucial.' But we'll keep the heart and backbone of the economy, aka the workers of Australia under house arrest, and on the dole. Definitely no hidden agenda here.

That same day saw 13,000 tests being undertaken in the state, the biggest day of testing so far, Premier DanielAndrewsMP says. DanielAndrewsMP Honestly, promoting hysteria by using terminology such as 'spike' is not helpful. Obviously you will find more cases if you do more tests. As a ratio of cases to tests this most recent result would be in line with the recent trend, which is a downward trend.

“When it comes to schools, the school shut down … that flows through to around 304,000 jobs,’’ he said. Mr Morrison said the schools shutdown had impacted gross domestic product (GDP) by an estimated three per cent. The party still intends to run. The sector that’s been most impacted is the hospitality, food services and accommodation sector, which has seen a loss of about 441,000 jobs, even though its impact in terms of the percentage decline in GDP is lower, at 2 per cent. Deputy Chief Medical Officer Nick Coatsworth. In retail services, there’s been a 1 per cent decline and 146,000 jobs. Mr Constance said the Prime Minister received "the welcome that he probably deserved" after Mr Morrison's disastrous visit to the South Coast town of Cobargo , where he was heckled by locals. Just under 120,000 in construction jobs, and around 108,000 in arts and recreation services jobs. "There won't likely be a threshold.

The broader remaining industries have seen around a 4 per cent fall on GDP but that has translated proportionally to fewer lost jobs. More to come. If there was an increase in COVID-19, it's likely it would be in a very confined geographic area or a region of Australia and so you would expect a regional response or quarantine. Speaking after today’s national cabinet meeting , Mr Morrison warned there was also a huge flow on effect from the closure of restaurants and cafes to suppliers. Mr Morrison said when restaurants and cafes were closed, they were not buying produce from the agricultural sector like they were before. “So there is a compounding of the effect and so keeping those times and places closed — and there have been very good reasons for having them closed — but the longer that goes on, it is not just the waiter and the chef that is affected, it is the food producer, it is the supply chain that goes into those sectors, and we need to take that into account. So far, our poll has attracted 22,400 votes and 76 per cent of responders are in favour of keeping Victoria's current state of lockdown.” RELATED: . Around 13 per cent believe restrictions should be eased, while 11 per cent want to keep wider restrictions but send kids back to school.
