The Australian Treasurer: no reopening of borders for a long time

From The Australian newspaper 7 July 2020.

International travel a long way off: Frydenberg

Australian Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has flagged that while the government would like to reopen Australia’s borders, it will be "a long time” before international travel resumes.

The Treasurer said that while Australia would like to boost the economy and welcome the return of international students, such a re-opening rests on our management of spikes in COVID-19 cases.

“We would like to do things sooner than later with some international students and, obviously, that’s going to depend on where we’re managing the spike in cases here in Australia,” Mr Frydenberg said.

“But I think it’s a long time before the international borders are open, the risk is too great, and we’re all very conscious of that so obviously targeted approaches are important.

He said Australia was still a long way off from open borders.

I dont see the borders opening up anytime before mid next year. If all goes well states may start to open their borders by the end of this year. Just when a lot of us thought we did well, Melbourne saw a spike in cases out of the blue and with that any hopes of returning back to normal are tossed out.
