Australia is considering travel bans for South Korea and Italy where coronavirus outbreaks have taken hold.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Tuesday asked for a reassessment of travel and border control arrangement for higher risk groups in those countries.
'I would note that those cases are quite different to some of the others because we are dealing with more advanced health systems in those places,' he told reporters in Canberra on Tuesday.
'We will continue to look to the health advice, which has not been - up until this point - to make any changes to those arrangements.'

The prime minister has also consulted with supermarket giants Coles and Woolworths, with the fallout affecting global supply chains and consumer behaviour.
Mr Morrison said Treasury was working with other government agencies to come up with a plan to boost the economy.
'It will be a targeted plan. It will be a measured plan. It will be a scalable plan,' he said.
'It will be targeted on the real diagnosis of the economic issue we are looking to confront here.'
