Australia now gripped in the Covid crisis had adopted a staunch stance of safety-first of its own citizens.
Today a German Cruise liner with 7 confirmed Covid cases was returned from the Perth port without given consent to dock. The decision is a diversion from Australia’s age-old human-first policies practiced by its governments for a long time. The German Cruise liner have 800 passengers on-board. This is the second such ship returned from Australia with a week.
The fate of 800 passengers is at high risk with 7 Covid patients already on the ship. Another luxury liner ‘Diamond Princess’ met with a high death count after the liner was not permitted to dock in their ports by several nations,the last being Japan.
