National Cabinet meeting to be held on Friday to discuss UK’s COVID ‘mutant strain’

The prime minister has called a special meeting of National Cabinet on Friday morning after three further cases of the more transmissible UK variant of COVID-19 were detected in Australia.

Scott Morrison said Premiers and Chief Ministers would convene to consider a proposal from the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee “to further strengthen the COVID safety of end to end international travel processes”.

The proposal looks at the process from arrival at airports in other countries to final clearance from hotel quarantine in Australia.

“This is being done particularly in the context of the UK strain,” he said.
