There is not a specific thread yet for that - but maybe that will change as the government eventually tightens (or relaxes?) things.Notwithstanding developments in Japan, do we have a thread focused on what's happening domestically in relation to national emergency response yet?
I think the basic parameters are included in this report: Morrison extends China travel ban as he enacts coronavirus emergency plan
Health Minister Greg Hunt was quoted as saying "In the event of a pandemic, the goal is to slow its spread if it gets to Australia. But with the number of countries that are now affected, we have to be realistic about the likelihood of containment strategies into the weeks ahead."
I interpret this as a sign the government is now officially expecting a wide spread outbreak in Australia. And I note the use of the term "weeks ahead" - not months.
The article mentions measures that in a "worst case" scenario include such things as locking down aged care homes, banning large gatherings, and suspending elective surgeries. In that scenario it would be easy to assume that non-essential travel will be banned also.
Imagine if the authorities forced a certain airline to cancel all non-essential air travel between regional towns, such as BCI-LRE?! That could have severe repercussions for some AFF members.......
