Australia may expand COVID restrictions if needed - official

Australia's Health Minister Greg Hunt (pictured) stated that the country may expand or strengthen coronavirus restrictions that are currently in the country.

Hunt said that this will happen if the medical evidence shows that action is needed in light of the newly discovered Omnicron virus. In light of the virus, Australia also announced it will suspend all flights to South Africa and eight other countries where it has been identified.

At the same time, the country's Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly was optimistic about the state of vaccination in the country, saying that they are in a much better position than when the Delta variant was discovered. However, he noted that there is still a lot of unknowns regarding this variant.
