Breaking News: Australia is banning all non-essential travel across the nation.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said air travel across Australia must be reduced and only the most essential travel will be allowed.

“We need to carry on the measures for at least the next six months.”

“The more we do together, the more lives we will save,” he said.

At a press conference Sunday morning, Morrison announced the government would move to ban all non-essential travel.

He said Australians should not take flights and any trips should be cancelled.
