Professor Catherine Bennett of Deakin University says a decline in the number of new COVID-19 cases could prompt a review of state border closures within weeks. Western Australia and Queensland are among the states that want hard border closures to be maintained, while Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews concedes that it will be some time before the state can argue the case for other jurisdictions to relax their border controls. Swinburne University’s Professor Bruce Thompson says the legality of border closures may be called into question if case numbers keep falling.
