Scott Morrison calls special National Cabinet meeting
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called a special National Cabinet meeting to discuss international travel protocols in light of the UK’s mutant COVID-19 strain.

“This is being done particularly in the context of the UK strain.”
The meeting will also provide an update on the vaccination rollout.
