Gu Xiaojie, the Chinese Consulate General in Sydney, declined to specify whether he had asked the state ministers – including the NSW deputy premier and ministers for health and education – to lobby Canberra to lift the extended travel ban on flights from China.
…”Some people are saying the situation will affect the reputation of Australian international education. That’s kind of fair,” he told a press conference on Wednesday, adding that it was a “fact” that Chinese students were reconsidering their plans to study in Australia.
Though Mr Gu focused his criticism on the three-week ban on travel from China, which is set to expire this weekend, he also raised concerns about the “do not travel” advisory on outbound travel to the mainland.
Contrary to the advice offered by these geniuses, the fastest way to spread racism in Australia is to reopen travel too quickly and see new coronavirus cases emerge.
China itself still has travel restrictions on 700m people.
What do we matter?
