Just under 100 single men and women (including a woman thought to be pregnant) have been notified in this initial wave. The Government have indicated that the measure will eventually be extended to all of those who have been brought to Australia from offshore for medical reasons.
This full group comprises around 400 people, including more than 116 children. Specifically:
- more than 50 babies born in Australia;
- 66 other children who were born overseas;
- 83 single men;
- 14 single women;
- The rest are adults within a family group (i.e. with children).
