The partial reopening sparked a strong reprimand from NSW government and business leaders, including Qantas CEO Alan Joyce, who called it “ridiculous”.
NSW Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian said last week the Victorian border restrictions would not be lifted until she saw the effects of relaxed restrictions in the southern state.
Western Australian Prime Minister Mark McGowan also announced that he will be removing his state’s “hard border” from November 14, but will still have to quarantine travelers from NSW and Victoria for two weeks.
Mr Hunt said the persistently low case numbers in Victoria and NSW meant the urge for “a single internal national bubble” increased. Mr Hunt praised healthcare workers and the public on Twitter for confirming that for the first time since June 9, the country had not recorded any cases of broadcasts in the community.
“We are on track to meet the prime minister’s goal of creating a country open internally before Christmas,” he said.
Victoria recorded zero new cases for its second straight day, while NSW’s four new cases were all in hotel quarantine on Sunday.

Mr Hunt outlined Australia’s rollout plans for the COVID-19 vaccine, saying the government still plans for the first doses to be available by March, with priority given to health workers and the elderly.
“We want everyone who wants to be vaccinated to complete a voluntary program that will be completed in the course of 2021 [and] In the middle of the year most of the population got this access. ”
Prime Minister Scott Morrison will present the final rollout plans to the cabinet in the coming weeks.
Mr Hunt also confirmed that the government is on the verge of finalizing two additional contracts to purchase COVID-19 vaccines, including the highly publicized mRNA vaccine.
Australia has already reached agreements for CSL to have 33.8 million doses of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine and 51 million doses of a University of Queensland vaccine if clinical trials are successful.
Mr. Hunt said the results of these trials were “more positive than expected”.
