Australians still banned from going overseas despite Covid vaccine

  Australians still banned from going overseas despite Covid vaccine Senior cabinet ministers have hinted Australians will be banned from travelling overseas for a holiday, even as the rollout of the Covid vaccine reduced case numbers and health risks.Hubs have now been set up in every state and territory to administer the Pfizer vaccine, with health and border force workers and aged care residents among the first to get the jab on Monday.

New research has found almost one in five Chinese Australians say they've been physically threatened or attacked in the past year.

A report by the Lowy Institute found most had blamed tensions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic or hostility between Canberra and Beijing.

Lowy Institute Research Fellow Dr Jennifer Hsu spoke to Sky News about the findings.

"It's been a difficult past 12 months for Chinese Australians," she said.

"We also found the survey results to be quite optimistic in some areas".

"There's a great sense of belonging to Australia".

"A great majority also feel like they belong ... well they are accepted, in their day-to-day life here in Australia".

"That tells me that part of what is going on in Australian society is that our multiculturalism is working in some parts, but not in all parts," she said.
