Statement on Chinese Australians

Chinese Australians have been magnificent patriots during the pandemic.

After Chinese New Year, they self isolated and protected the wider Australian community from COVID-19.

The broader Australian family owes a great debt to Chinese Australians and we thank them for their loyalty.

They certainly don’t need to put up with rubbish, unsophisticated commentary like “wuhan flu”.

I am looking forward to reconvening my Chinese-Australian advisory group in a fortnight to hear their perspectives.
