New South Wales chief medical officer Kerry Chant said on 12 March that COVID-19 could infect up to 20 per cent of the state’s population. Chant’s comments came as the number of COVID-19 cases in Australia rose past 150, with 78 of those being in NSW. International travel has now been banned for all federal MPs, while Prime Minister Scott Morrison has asked the government’s expert panel for advice on whether Australia should follow the US’s lead and ban all travel from Europe. NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard said there were fears the COVID-19 outbreak could extend into the flu season, and he urged everyone to get their flu shots.
