Australia's new Federal Minister of Education Alan Tudge (Alan Tudge) said that whether a large number of international students are allowed to return to Australia depends on the new crown vaccine.
Weather in Australian capital cities:
The weather in the capital cities of Australia on August 1:
- Sydney: sunny 27-37 degrees
- Melbourne: showers 17-22 degrees
- Canberra: showers 27-35 degrees
- Brisbane: sunny 26-31 degrees
- Perth: Sunny 15-26 degrees
- Ad莱德：局部多云 18-24度
- Hobart: 19-22 degrees rain in the morning
- Darwin: 26-29 degrees with rain
Minister Alan Tuqi said that state governments are formulating relevant recommendations to allow international students to return to campus under strict quarantine measures.
But he also said that effective vaccines are the best measure of whether students can return to Australia.
However, he said that there are many assumptions.
Brendon Murphy, Executive Deputy Minister of the Federal Ministry of Health, also said that the international border will remain basically closed throughout 2021.
The Cabinet of Ministers agreed to temporarily reduce the maximum number of people returning to Australia
Prime Minister Morrison stated at a press conference after the National Cabinet Meeting that residents and staff of nursing homes do not need to be vaccinated for the new crown to continue to live or work in nursing care facilities.
However, the Prime Minister did not rule out that "in the future" the staff of nursing homes may be forced to vaccinate.
Earlier, Prime Minister Morrison also stated that the National Cabinet is "doing all it can" to return Australians stranded overseas.
The halving of the maximum number of inbound international passengers will end on February 2, but it can end early if the states agree.
After the ceiling number is halved, NSW allows up to 1505 people to be quarantined in hotels a week, Queensland allows up to 500 people a week, and Western Australia's ceiling is 512.
In addition, starting today, passengers entering Australia need to provide a new crown-negative PCR nucleic acid test report, and the test must be carried out within 72 hours before boarding.

The official invitation of Taiwan’s representative to the U.S. to attend Biden’s inauguration upset Beijing
Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement saying that this move demonstrates the close and friendly relations between Taiwan and the United States based on shared values.
Hua Chunying, spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that the Chinese Embassy in the United States received an invitation to attend the inauguration of President Biden, and said: "China firmly opposes any form of official exchanges between the United States and Taiwan...We urge the United States to abide by the one-China principle. The three Sino-US joint communiqués stipulate that Taiwan-related issues should be handled carefully and properly, so as not to damage Sino-US relations and the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait."
The day before Biden took office, then Secretary of State-designate Blincoln had stated that he supported strengthening exchanges with Taiwan and hoped that Taiwan would play a stronger role in international organizations.
Taiwan’s Central News Agency quoted people familiar with the matter as saying that Xiao Meiqin received an invitation letter from the preparatory committee last week and carried out a new coronary pneumonia test in advance according to regulations.

Australia’s long weekend heat wave hits
In the next few days, high temperatures are expected in western and southern NSW, and the temperature may reach 35-45 degrees Celsius from this Sunday to next Monday.
In the next few days, the temperature in Western Sydney is expected to reach 38 to 40 degrees Celsius.
Dr. Adi Vyas of the NSW Department of Health said that in the relatively cool summer, high temperatures and heat waves can make people feel uncomfortable, and people should deal with it in advance.
He advises people to stay indoors between 11 am and 5 pm, because that is the hottest time outside.
Hot weather will also increase the risk of fire.Surf lifeguards may also spend a busy weekend.

The police will also step up patrols throughout NSW and conduct random drunk driving tests.
Relevant departments expect that due to the closure of NSW's interstate borders, a large number of tourists will visit NSW rural areas.
Endangered purebred alpine dingo pups found in Victoria
The cubs of two Australian native dingo (dingo) rescued recently in the high mountains of Victoria have been confirmed to be purebred alpine dingo.
The two purebred wild dog pups named "Myrtle" and "Moko" were discovered less than two years ago after another purebred mountain wild dog "Wandi" was discovered.
This shows that endangered mountain wild dogs still thrive in the wild.
The two puppies were discovered by two local mountain bike enthusiasts in October last year.At that time, the four dingo pups were starving beside the dry tree trunk, and they were obviously abandoned by the bitch.Two cyclists took two dingo cubs back, and the other two escaped.
