Prime Minister Morrison (Scott Morrison) has called for the cancellation of the federal parliament schedule for next month, as a result of the sharp deterioration of the new-crown pneumonia epidemic and the alarming signs of COVID-19virus community transmission in the new state.

On the advice of professor kelly (Paul Kelly), the federal chief medical officer, morrison has written to the speaker of the parliament house of representatives to cancel the two-week session, which starts on august 4.

He also forwarded the letter to the President of the Senate and the leader of the Federal opposition party.

Professor Kelly said parliament meetings would pose a "huge risk" to congressman and senator, their staff, as well as to parliament staff and to a wide range of communities in the capital territory.

government can't ignore this suggestion, Morrison said.

"parliament meeting to exclude a state's councillor is neither feasible nor desirable ," he said in a statement Saturday. "

The federal opposition party leader, Anthony Albanese, has accepted Prime Minister Morrison's request to cancel the next parliament meeting on the grounds of fear of Coronavirus contagion, but remains disappointed that government can thus avoid being questioned.

Meanwhile, health authorities are anxiously waiting to see the number of newly diagnosed COVID-19 infections announced today in Virginia.

Virginia yesterday announced 428 new cases of new crown infection, the most confirmed since the outbreak of the day, three elderly patients death, increase the number of deaths from new crown pneumonia nationwide to 116.
