Australia’s National Cabinet has reportedly agreed to remove mandatory Covid isolation rules.

The Nine Network reported that the mandate will remain in place for hospital and elderly care workers, but will not otherwise apply to Covid patients. We are waiting for new details soon.

It follows a push by NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet to abolish long-standing rules.

Australians in all states and territories are currently required to self-isolate for five days if they test positive for Covid-19.

“We need to get to a point where if you’re sick you stay home and if you’re well you go out and enjoy life and that’s where we need to get to as a country,” Perrottet said.

“We also need to get to this position where people take care of each other, take care of each other and make sure that if you’re sick you stay home without there being a public health order.”

Australian Medical Association President Dr. Steve Robson warned against the move on ABC News Breakfast.

Dr Robson said: “I think the people who are pushing for isolation periods to be cut are not scientifically literate and they are putting the public at risk and they need to understand that.”

We are seeing a huge increase in the number of COVID cases again. The holiday season is coming when people would be traveling all over the world.

“This is a period of significant risk and we ask for caution because we need to protect the health system.”
