Medical advice we have and the evidence that we’ve and our quarantine facilities, in particular up in the Northern Territory, is showing that the number of cases there is moving back to more manageable levels and will be at a level by 15 May to ensure that as planned we will be able to return to having those repatriation flights from India, from 15 May.

There will be no change to the biosecurity orders we have put in place, which were put in place to run till 15 May. That biosecurity order is working as exactly as it was intended to, and that will remain in place with no change until 15 May.

National Security Committee of Cabinet has confirmed that it will have done its job by then, and as a result we see no need to extend it beyond that date. So the original decision to put in place that biosecurity order until 15 May has proved very effective and it will run its full course until that time without any change.

What we will be doing is receiving our first repatriation flight into the Northern Territory as part of the charter arrangements that we have with our airlines to bring back those first people from India at that time.
