(ANSA) – ROME, July 02 – Australia has halved the number of people from abroad allowed into the country, in tightening measures to counter the spread of Covid-19 that has also seen in recent days an extension of its lockdown and confinement now affecting half the population. So, from July 14, Australia will only allow 3,000 people per week to enter the country, a rule that could remain in place until next year. BBC reports.
The announcement caused panic among Australians living abroad and separated from their families. But Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the measure would ease pressure on the quarantine system, which is mandatory for arrivals. Outbreaks from hotels in quarantine will be a source of new emergencies in different parts of the country. (handle).
