UK faces uncertain winter, says Jenny Harries
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has backed plans to speed up the resumption of international travel as soon as the New South Wales home quarantine program is ready.
In a live Facebook broadcast on Sunday, the Prime Minister said he had had discussions with NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet about advancing the start date for international travel for people entirely vaccinated.
Morrison previously said states would be allowed to reopen to international travelers in mid-November once their 80% vaccination targets are met.
His comments come after Perrottet said earlier on Sunday that he wanted to resume international travel “as quickly as possible”, signaling that a home quarantine program for fully vaccinated people could begin as soon as the end of this month.
