Australia in no hurry to reopen borders: PM Scott Morrison


Australia is in no hurry to คำศัพท์บาคาร่า reopen its international borders and risk the country's nearly coronavirus-free lifestyle, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Sunday (Apr 18).

Australia closed its borders to all non-citizens and non-residents in March 2020 and has permitted only limited international arrivals in recent months, mainly Australians returning from abroad.

Border closures, together with snap lockdowns, swift contact tracing and high community compliance with health measures, has made Australia one of the world's most successful countries in curbing the pandemic.

Australia has recorded around 29,500 COVID-19 cases and 910 deaths.

"Australia is in no hurry to open those borders, I assure you," Morrison said in a televised briefing.

"I will not be putting at risk the way we are living in this country, which is so different to the rest of the world today."
