Queensland’s acting tourism minister, Scott Stewart, is asking Sydney residents to cancel their bookings as a result of the border closures, so other people can snap them up.
“We’re expecting strong interest from interstate and Queensland holidaymakers in snapping up cancelled bookings from Greater Sydney,” he said, as reported by AAP.
The NSW health minister, Brad Hazzard, was on the ABC’s Radio National earlier this morning, where he gave a hint of the latest case numbers to come today.
Hazzard said he wouldn’t give out the numbers, but said he is “fairly happy on that issue”.
