A meeting of the national cabinet on 29 May will review the progress of the states and territories in easing coronavirus lockdown restrictions in recent weeks. Meanwhile, the federal government’s target date of July to re-open the economy may be brought forward if the nation’s success in containing the virus’s spread is sustained. The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee is expected to recommend doing so earlier if the nation continues to record fewer than 10 new cases of the coronavirus each day. The meeting is also expected to consider retaining the national cabinet model in the post-coronavirus environment.
