Wuhan, China were only lifted in the last 24 hours, and the city's airport whirred back into action along with many other transport hubs in Hubei province.The cargo flight, operated by Chinese carrier Suparna Airlines, arrived in Sydney after 9:00pm on Wednesday, and is the first flight from Wuhan to land at Australia's busiest airport since late January.

3,213 people have died in Hubei province since the COVID-19 outbreak began, with close to 68,000 confirmed cases in the region."This flight will be carrying up to 90 tonnes of much needed medical supplies," a spokesperson for the Home Affairs Department told the ABC.

"Flights like this are crucial in ensuring the ongoing supply of these critical goods."The arrival of the flight is likely to prompt quarantine concerns,"International crew are permitted to transit through Australia, but must remain in the port or airport, or self-isolate in accommodation for the duration of their transit," the Home Affairs spokesman said.

"Quarantine and isolation arrangements in each state are the responsibility for each state and territory government."Coronavirus update: Follow the latest news in our daily wrap.Being a freight plane, the aircraft would be unloaded away from passenger terminals at Sydney Airport.

"Cargo handlers operating out of the airport are following the strictest hygiene and infection control protocols in line with advice from health authorities," a spokesperson for Sydney Airport said in a statement. Read more: ABC News »

二手的,回收利用…… Better than nothing 🤷‍♂️ like anyone else can help Trojan Horse So they're bringing back all our medical supplies they've been shipping out daily, Australia wake up, this could be the Trojan Horse TO SBS NEWS THERE IS A SITE IN CHINA WHERE A STRONGER STRAIN OF THE CORONAVIRUS IS BEING EVILLY CREATED WHICH MAKES THIS PLANE BRINGING MEDICAL SUPPLIES TO AUSTRALIA FOR THE CORONAVIRUS FROM THE STATED SPECIFIC ORIGIN OF THE 'WUHAN VIRUS' SEEM BLATANTLY DANGEROUS FOR AUSTRALIA .

No thanks Filthy China made crap Witness the numbers escalate. This is ABSOLUTE MADNESS. PPEs and ventilators direct from Wuhan, the very city where the coronavirus originated. The ironic thing is that majorities of masks are made in Wuhan! Why ? How long does it take to sanitise 90 tons of potentially virus infected equipment....flight crew put in isolation or are they out there stocking up on baby powder

I guess that’s the least that they can do, since they have fucked the whole world We have become such a feeble nation, we can't even make enough of the simplest of essential med equipment. Change has to happen. Tonga had the right idea, divert it to another country Is it just me why on earth would be you let a flight in from this part of China absolutely crazy

how long until there is a return flight ... Is this absolutely necessary at this time and of all places from Wuhan .. surely there are other places where these items can be sourced. What guarantee is there that the products are not contaminated ... these will be worn by the medical staff ! Just does not make any sense!

Disgusting Is this a joke...send it back. Let's hope it ain't all faulty 🙄🙄 ...so only one country produces these items ?😳...🇦🇺 grow produce, mine resources, we are have a population of 25 million, we pride ourselves to be at the forefront of technology have some of the best brains in the 🌍 : yet we go cheap?🤨

Really? After China bought up every last supply around the world and shipped it to them now they want to send it back? Disgusting racist comments. Is this Australian? Has Australia ever had strong and competitive manufacturing before? Wake up, racist idiots! Accept the supplies with gratitude, because we need them to save lives. Racists, feel free to not use them. covid19australia

Most likely the same quality as the shit delivered to the European countries. It better be free, since it's these fucking Chinese that stripped our shelves for there own benefit Wtf? Why are we accepting potentially contaminated material? Far out these dudes have no clue. There are 2 whole state full of very clever vehicle production experienced people (SA and VIC) that could make this shit in blink. Scomo ineptitude again

While we have to do the right thing and go in lock down our government continues to bring in the virus. Watch the numbers go up every time we bring in something from China! And they wonder why there’s unemployment ffs we should be making our own gear. It’s time to scale up and restart Australian industry.

They’re still dropping dead in the streets of Wuhan from the virus. It’s just not being reported or counted anymore. AmandaPerram Fumigate the plane - ---- why wuhan ? ABC the mouthpiece of the CCP🇨🇳 So we allow tonnes of medical supplies to be sent to China leaving us short then medical supplies are imported from the coronavirus epicentre. Yep. Sounds feasible.

Classic CCP move, trying to change the Narrative SEND IT FUCKING BACK It's like the Grime Reaper handing out lollypops! CCPVirus Is it the same 80t that chinese businesses bought here and sent back to china Quick spray with glen 20 and leave in the garage for 72 hours. That’s what we do. Has it disintegrated yet?

One world, one love! China government and Chinese will stand together with Australian people! Chinese has won this war, it is time to help other countries’ friends! Yeah keep blindly trusting the commies, why not right ? The responses to this are a bit scary. For contamination it seems more risky to purchase PPE from the USA right now or another nation next week. There's been quality issues. There's been quality issues in recent Australian made PPE. Production everywhere is opportunistic & rushed

Yeah test kits are unreliable from US as well so we can't even order from there. We should make our own using the workers wo lost jobs in cafes and suff. If this idiocy doesn't prove the government is both stupid and extremely dangerous, I really don't know what actually will be as obvious as this utter stupidity! I hope soon media & unscrupulous politicians are charged with terrorism in the international court of justice.

MackayIM Is our government that thick to risk lives by using faulty equipment from China? Bloody hell Check the quality, I understand substandard supplies have been shipped to Europe. Bring back manufacturing to Australia- never let us be reliant on another country for essential items mjrowland68 LisaMillar BreakfastNews

ChinaVirus Equipment that are faulty? Unless they shipped back things that were made in Aus, we are not interest😡 MackayIM I hope it's not defective which has been the European experience. No one, even one here said 'thx' while a lot of countries are struggling for PPE. Shame on u. MackayIM The Trojan Horse from China.

Any loo paper in that? Thanks China, good job! This is an expected once in a century plague that is indiscriminate in its victims. We are all in this together. So thanks China, and thanks to all essential workers risking themselves for the health of others. MattDoran91. High time Australia starts manufacturing this equipment locally. It's a big opportunity to create jobs with secondary economic benefits. GregHuntMP

To the citizens of Wuhan, thank you for making the masks. I understand that you made them in a rush so we will test them before using. Sorry your government failed you and us. Stay strong. 😐 Keep trying. Every little helps. More faulty equipment!!! But does any of it work properly? Return to sender Good to know Wuhan is recovering. Hope every country will recover from this crisis soon. Stay united, stay strong.

Test it first. Probably used. Prop a ganda panda International trade of essential supplies, BUT Australia really needs to restart its manufacturing base Ah laughable, so every single city in the world and they use wuhan... Too obvious Addzy18 Send it back Return to Sender.. It’s time to tell China 🇨🇳 To grab your Bat & Ball & Stay Home.. + Send all the Confuscius Institute Cretins Back too..

WTF 🤷‍♀️ Quarantine the lot before handing it out! As much as the Daigou have already exported? Wise man says: 'Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.' (Don't be ungrateful when you receive a gift) MackayIM I am confused 🤔 Did we ask for it? Is this going to the national stockpile we were told we have? Is this the stuff that was shipped by dai-gou in Jan-Feb? Or was it donated to Wuhan but their medicos didn't get to use? Or worse, it's newly made, rushed, subpar equipment?

Thanks Wuhan! But Aussie made Australiamattersmore Thanks china appreciated! sure we are all a bit annoyed right now, but don't take it out on the people of china! They didn't want this either. Sadly it will cost them going forward! StephenMcDonell ? Thoughts? Are you kidding. Send this shit back now. BoycottChina ScottMorrisonMP PeterDutton_MP PaulineHansonOz

That’s a great news for Australia frontline health workers, big relief! Look at the ungrateful comments here. Gee I think I'll pass on the Chinese medicine Well I'd be making sure THAT'S all quarantined and disinfected! WUHAN The risks you take.. Disinfect disinfect DISINFECT!!!!!! 😷😷😷😷😷😷 If we are lucky its the same medical equipment that Chinese companies hoarded from Australia under CCP directive and is now sold back to us for good profit! Every Ferengi would be proud of that sort of business really!

Weapons deployed. Are thes the supplies that Twiggy Forrest organised 😜 Pfftt! no wonder sydney has the worse death rate (fkn wake up) Lets hope its not the same faulty, low quality, broken, fake medical equipment that the CCP is sending to Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Czech Republic, France, UK, Turkey, Spain and Slovakia and other countries at the moment.

MackayIM Is it defective like the tests they sent Spain? Wuhan? Hope the crew are quarantined Filling up royal Melbourne show bags early this year. 🤔 One that they hoarded from AUS? Epic. In Jan/Feb that city of 11 million was hell on earth, now they’re already sending out equipment. Time flies. Check them carefully for quality .

We're going National. Get the tariffs ready & push the button on self reliance. Why? Why Wuhan? Why this equipment - so it can be bought and shipped back? Is Wuhan back on our favourite cities list now the it's had a miracle cure? Talk about mixed messages! Who organised this? Sounds like another clusterfuck just waiting to happen! auspol CODVID19 BorderFarce

Can we blame this or 5G or covid DanielNaqvi carrying 90 tonnes of protective masks, gowns and ventilators. About same amount those fuckers at Greenland group stole from us. Why buy life preserving and life saving equipment that is madeinchina when we all know madeinchina is cheap crap that doesn't work properly?

A lot of racism in the comments. I know we need it but really, can't we make it ourself or source it from another country? I thought we were making this stuff now and not relying upon any other nations? Fun Fact: Q- How many deaths did the Communist Chinese report after the Tiananmen Square massacre? A- None

Lets see what quality the medical equipment is, if it is actually usable or just like the faulty gear that China is flooding europe with... Sweet is it all fake equipment? Disinfect stat and no quarantine of the crew!
