Australia has just announced that unless you are an Australian citizen, you will not be allowed entry if you are coming from China.

Australia has not banned flights from Hong Kong ....yet. I'm wondering how long it will take for the "smartest people in the room " to work out people can just go from mainland China and into Hong Kong and get a flight to Australia.

By the time CL makes any decision to close the border with China it will be too late, the ball is quickly rolling. Soon the only country that will still accept anyone or any flights from Hong Kong will be China itself.

Also, since lots of countries are now turning away or quarantining anyone who has been in China in the last 14 days, how does this affect crew either operating or passengering to these countries if they meet this restriction? Will a turn-around flight also count as having been to China?

according to the news in hk, qantas claimed they are pulling out of China because of the limitation it has on its crew scheduling because of this 14 days quarantine......

Also PR, and family members allowed from China. Strange virus that takes passport into account!

Whilst white Australia would at the moment probably like to exclude all Chinese, that would be blatantly racist, however practical and sensible it may be. It would never float.
So by allowing Citizens and Permanent Residents to enter Australia, regardless of whether they are of Chinese descent, prevents any accusations of racism.
What is ironic is that the Aust Govt has put in place tentative rescue plans for these almost entirely 'Chinese Australians' and their kids, but now they are complaining about having to spend 14 days at Christmas Island.
One of them whinged further in the press saying if it was a white Australian, they wouldn't be sending them there. Typical blinkered victim approach! I hope somebody pointed out that all rescued folk, be they Chinese, White or Magenta are going to get the 2 week quarantine. So what if it's a refugee camp, and how about just saying thank you.

AA have suspended flights to HK now..Iím sure the start of many... CX could potentially be grounded in the coming weeks if other countries extend their ban to HK.


Interesting to see thousands of doctors and nurses going on strike until CL takes action and closes the borders...amazing it needs to get to this, just like the protests over the extradition bill....she really doesnít understand the people of HK obviously... She should be embarrassed.

I'm not saying the border doesn't need shutting, it does to people, and should have been done last week.
Hasn't Macau closed its border with China? Where do they get their "fresh" food from?

Borders closing tonight. This maybe the best news CX has had in a while... If HK became exposed for longer it would need to be isolated itself from the rest of the world.

HK Macau ferries stopped. A cunning plan to get people to use the bridge.
