Australia imposes mandatory quarantine on all international travelers

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced this Sunday that he will impose mandatory isolation for 14 days for all passengers arriving in the country from abroad.

The measure, which will begin to be implemented as of midnight today, aims to contain the spread of the coronavirus, which so far has been detected in the country in 249 patients, while three people have lost their lives to the virus.

Morrison also announced a ban on docking in Australian ports for all cruises for the next 30 days, although he said the order could be extended.

Australia had previously announced restrictions on international travel, as well as the cancellation of shows and concerts with large crowds, and stipulated that meetings of more than 500 people cannot be held.
