Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said that the country's national security team has agreed to terminate the deal of 50 million doses of the University of Queensland's vaccine candidate. The University of Queensland was working with an Australian biotech company called CSL, and since the news of the HIV false positives, both companies will now abandon current clinical trials.

Sources that have been close with the vaccine trials have said that pathology tests indicated that the health of the trial participants was not at risk, and that the tests were confirmed to be false positives in past weeks. After being advised by health professionals who were concerned about how the information would impact peoples perceptions with COVID-19 vaccines, Scott Morison said, "We have prepared for this. We have planned for this. And now we're making decisions in accordance with this".
