New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will join Australia’s National Cabinet meeting on Tuesday to discuss measures being taken by the two governments against the CCP virus, and a possible “trans-Tasman bubble” that may allow free movement between Australia and New Zealand.

The Australian reported on Monday that Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison invited Ardern to join National Cabinet by telephone last Thursday.

On Monday, New Zealand reported no new cases or deaths caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as novel coronavirus. New Zealand is now considering downgrading its restrictions from level 4 to level 3.
