China tells students to avoid studying in Australia because of the twin viruses: COVID-19 and racial attacks. The Australian says to blame Black Lives Matter protesters if the next stage of easing doesn't happen (which could cost $1bn), but then New South Wales announces adult community sport is back from July 1. Oh, and Queensland keeps fighting to keep borders closed.

The Chinese Education Ministry warned Australia has racism and coronavirus issues, citing “multiple discriminatory incidents against Asians in Australia".
