Melbourne: To prevent the spread of corona virus, Australia has imposed a temporary ban on passengers coming from India. Also, if Australian citizens also violate it, they could face imprisonment for five years and a hefty fine of 66 thousand Australian dollars.
The temporary ban came into effect from Monday and it will be applicable to those travelers who want to come to Australia and have traveled to India in 14 days. According to a Herald newspaper published from Sydney, it is estimated that there are currently about nine thousand Australians in India and 600 of them are classified as unsafe.
The objective is to stop the corona virus virus in Australia
The decision was announced by the Ministry of Health on Friday after a meeting of the Australian Cabinet. Its purpose is to stop the corona virus virus in Australia, while the cases of Kovid-19 in India are increasing rapidly.
This step was taken because of the number of infected
Health Minister Greg Hunt said that this decision is based on the proportion of passengers in India and those who came to Australia from abroad and kept in isolation. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) quoted him as saying that the move was taken because of the number of ‘unmanageable’ infected passengers from India.
According to the news, violation of the travel ban could lead to imprisonment for five years or a fine of 66 thousand Australian dollars or both.
