Australia to deny entry to travellers from China | Sky News AustraliaForeign travellers coming from or passing through mainland China will be denied entry to Australia as the government ramps up its defence against the deadly coronavirus spreading around the globe.\n\nExemptions will be made for Australian citizens, permanent residents and their immediate family as well as aircrews, under strict conditions.\n\n“All travellers arriving out of mainland China, not just Hubei province as has been the case up until now, are being asked and required to self-isolate for a period of 14 days from the time they leave mainland China,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison said.\n\nTravel advice for mainland China has been raised to level four or “do not travel”. Ramps up = finally makes a call, dragged to making the right decision Finally What if people fly from China to another country and then fly to Aus (within 14 days)? Relying on Border Force finding and reading the exit stamp date on the passport? If yes, I hope their maths is goood enough and fast enough especially when the time zone is also a variable.

Australia needs 'a single voice' on coronavirus response | Sky News AustraliaThe Australian Medical Association says Australia's ability to control the rampant coronavirus is being hampered because we do not have a centralised infection control body like other major western countries. \n\nTheir call for a centralised national coordinating centre for infectious disease is also being backed by the Australasian Society for Infectious Disease. \n\nNewscorp National Health Correspondent Sue Dunlevy says 'we need a single voice on this, we've already seen in the last week conflicting messages from state and federal governments about whether kids who have been to China should be able to go to school.'\n\nImage: Getty Nobody trusts the self-serving, highly political AMA any more. 😳 Much like us not having a central bushfire control body. It might have something to do with our Constitution/State rights. Do the AMA propose we re-write the Constitution or have the Federal Govt ask the State Govts to relinquish some of their rights? Good luck with either.

PM Morrison praises Bridget McKenzie following her resignation | Sky News AustraliaPrime Minister Scott Morrison has thanked Bridget McKenzie for her “hard work”, as the embattled minister stood down from the frontbench after it was found her involvement in the so-called sports rorts saga breached ministerial standards. \n\nMs McKenzie quit her position on Mr Morrison’s frontbench, and also stepped down from her Nationals leadership roles on Sunday afternoon, a move which was applauded by the prime minister. \n\nThe move followed a finding by the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet secretary Phil Gaetjens, that Ms McKenzie had breached the ministerial code of conduct for failing to disclose her association and membership of a gun club that was provided federal funding in the sports rorts saga.\n\nSenator McKenzie had been embroiled in the scandal since the Auditor-General revealed she – as sports minister – used a $100 million sport grants fund to splash cash in marginal seats ahead of the 2019 election.\n\n“Minister McKenzie has shown a great respect for the statement of standards,” Mr Morrison said. \n\n“She has honoured that statement of standards in the decision she has taken today by offering her resignation to me this afternoon.\n\n“I want to thank Bridget McKenzie for the outstanding job she’s done in serving, both in my cabinet and my predecessors cabinet,” he said. \n\nImage: Getty Can’t be bothered reading the article. How much hush money did she get? 🤑 Hard work =covering my ass so I don't get dropped in it 🙄🙄 Bet you the report front he head of PM and Cabinet remains secret... It needs to be released. The person writing the report is PM's ex chief of staff and his current dept head. There is a conflict of interest here majorly.
