We’re win­ning but virus bat­tle goes on, says PM Mor­ri­son

Fiji Sun - - NEWS -

Can­berra: Aus­tralia is win­ning the bat­tle against coro­n­avirus but has not yet won, the Prime Min­is­ter has de­clared.

“That virus is still out there,” Scott Mor­ri­son said yes­ter­day.

“That virus still has the great po­ten­tial to do enor­mous harm to the liveli­hoods of Aus­tralians and the lives of Aus­tralians and we need to con­tinue to fight that bat­tle.”

Par­lia­ment sat yes­ter­day for three days, with the trea­surer to pro­vide an eco­nomic up­date, in­stead of the pre­vi­ously sched­uled fed­eral bud­get which has been pushed back to Oc­to­ber.

The gov­ern­ment says the econ­omy could grow by AU$9.4 bil­lion each month once all states have reached the third stage of re­open­ing.
