Hotspot definition to guide border issues

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has vowed to establish a national definition for coronavirus hotspots with or without agreement from state governments.

Acting Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly has been asked to come up with a clinical definition as the federal government pushes states to explain border restrictions.

He said the CMO’s clear definition would be essential for moving away from border restrictions, with a greater focus on other containment strategies.
