Australia has upgraded its travel advice in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak to include all of mainland China to level four, "do not travel", Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has advised Australians not to travel to China, while asking those who have returned from the country to self-isolate for 14 days.
Mr Morrison said DFAT had recommended the implementation of additional border measures, which would deny entry to Australia for people who have left or transited through mainland China from today.
Exceptions will be made for Australian citizens, permanent residents and their immediate family, as well as air crews who have been using appropriate personal protective equipment.
"In addition to that, there'll be advanced screening and reception arrangements put into place at the major airports to facilitate identifying and providing this information and ensuring the appropriate precautions are being put in place," Mr Morrision said.
"There's a half a million masks that will be provided to those airports to support those who are coming off these flights as well as those who are with those coming from those flights.
"There'll also be thermometers which are provided to those airports and we're working with those airport authorities now to ensure we can put those arrangements in place."
The level four travel advice warning had previously only applied to the Hubei province, where the original outbreak of the novel coronavirus occurred in the city of Wuhan.
Foreign Minister Marise Payne said the process of evacuating Australians from Wuhan.
"We are continuing the planning and the arrangements for the assisted departure of Australians from Wuhan," Ms Payne said.
"We expect that process to be finalised and finally agreed soon and we are are proceeding on that basis. We have approached this assisted departure operation very carefully with an absolute priority on the health and the safety of all Australians. Here at home and overseas."
