PILOTS on all international flights into Australia must now identify any of their passengers showing flu symptoms.

Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon has outlined Australia's updated response the worldwide outbreak of swine flu, saying it "can be in place by late this afternoon''. 

Additional clinical treatment areas  will be opened at airports but it was unclear when they would be available. 

Four million health declaration cards will be distributed to airports around the country but a decision will be made later on whether they will be given to all inbound passengers.

Arrangements are also in place to deploy thermal scanners to eight of Australia's international airports.

"They are in transit to airports today and all arrangements are in place for AQIS (Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service) to be standing by to receive that equipment and to use it if that becomes necessary,'' Ms Roxon said.
