Published on : Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Australia is currently in discussion with Japan, South Korea, Singapore and South Pacific countries in regard to travel reopening as virus infections ease, Prime Minister Scott Morrison mentioned on Sunday, Oct 11th.


In March 2020, Australia had shut down its international borders to arrest the virus spread and is now looking to renew its tourism to help pull the country out of its first recession in almost three decades.


As Australia has successfully handled to contain the virus outbreak in a much better way than other countries, at present, in the state of Victoria, it is facing a second wave, where Melbourne remains under a tight lockdown. However, since early August, infections have been falling rapidly.


Mr. Morrison explained that he had talked with his counterparts in Japan, South Korea and some Pacific nations, while Foreign Minister Marise Payne had talked with Singapore this week on travel recommencing.


“There are a number of countries that have performed well on the health front, and Australia and those countries are one of a handful of countries that have had the same level of success,” Mr. Morrison said at a televised media conference.


“But we have to go cautiously on this – very, very cautiously. Covid-19 hasn’t gone anywhere. It’s still there. And it is no less aggressive today than it was six months ago.”
