It happened when Mr Morrison revealed that states and territories had agreed to narrow the definition of close contact to people living with confirmed COVID-19 cases, in a major change that would reduce the number of people to be insulated.

Morrison convened a press conference following an emergency meeting of the National Cabinet on Thursday to deal with the escalating situation caused by the Omicron variant.

“Omicron is a game changer.”
