Health Minister, Greg Hunt has predicted the world will be watching as Australia and New Zealand become among the first nations in the world to not only flatten the curve but lift restrictions.
“What we hope comes out of national cabinet...and what I expect, is a clear roadmap out, with clear stages,” he said in Melbourne. “In terms of our isolation, tomorrow the National Cabinet will consider the first stages on the road out and that’s only possible because of the extraordinary work of Australians.
“Again, I say thank you. You have helped put us in this position, where Australians will now be at the forefront of beginning to regain their lives as the world looks on.
“What we’ve consciously done is established the baselines and said that, as states are comfortable, then they can move forward, and so tomorrow there will be the final decision of the National Cabinet on the framework and my hope and expectation is that that will set out clear stages and then each state will determine how they’re able to move.”
