Morrison (Scott Morrison) warned Australians living overseas to prepare for a further decline in flights to Australia as confirmed cases of COVID-19virus infection increased among those returning from overseas travel.

More than 357,000 Australian citizen and permanent residents have returned to Australia in mid-March to escape the global pandemic of new crown pneumonia, after the federal government the border closed to allow only Australian citizen and permanent residents. Anyone returning from overseas travel must undergo a 14-day quarantine at the hotel to stop the spread of Coronavirus.

Earlier this week, the federal government reduced the number of people returning from overseas trips allowed daily from sydney airport to 450. For more than half a month, the growing epidemic in Virginia has suspended the entry of returnees from Melbourne airport for two weeks to ease the strain on vaccination and quarantine.

The suspension of overseas arrivals has added pressure on other states and territories to receive more Australians returning from overseas and to arrange quarantine at local hotels, especially the new state.

Prime Minister Morrison said he received a request from Western Australia Governor Mark McGowan to lower the maximum number of people returning from overseas travel at Perth Airport. He will discuss the issue of reducing the number of inbound international flights across the country at the cabinet meeting tomorrow (Friday).

"I've been talking to state governors over the past 24 hours about reducing international flights ," he said Thursday morning. "

"In fact, I had a good discussion with Governor McGovern yesterday. In fact, NSW took on the pressure of accepting the most overseas returnees. They had NSW, Kunzhou, Western Australian, and Tasmanians. NSW has taken on tremendous pressure and expenses."

"In Virginia, we have suspended the entry and exit of these international flights, which means that people have moved to other flights to other capitals, and we have conducted research and, as I said, I will submit a proposal to the to slow down the rate of manned entry of international flights. "

Cook (Roger Cook), Director of Health, Western Australia, said that Western Australia had agreed to reduce the number of people entering overseas to 525 per week, with an average of 75 people per day.
