A wrap of some key things mentioned in this press conference:

The PM said the current trajectory for coronavirus cases in Australia was ‘encouraging’. But he warned the virus ‘writes its own rules’.

The PM said an industry code of practice for commercial and retail tenants was being worked on, but it still needs to be approved by the Cabinet (this will likely happen next Tuesday).

Places of worship will be considered ‘workplaces’ to allow religious groups to live stream religious services over Easter.

Australia’s Chief Medical Officer Dr Brendan Murphy said he believes the global coronavirus count could be “five to 10 times” higher than the 1 million known cases.

The PM says people living in Australia on visitor visas should make their way home.
