Australia : Controversial India travel ban to end at midnight



 Flights from India to Australia will resume from midnight tonight, bringing an end to the controversial travel ban. 

The first repatriation flight left Sydney this morning and will deliver essential oxygen equipment to India before being boarded by those returning who will quarantine in Darwin’s Howard Springs facility.

 At least 9,000 Australians have registered an interest to return to the country and around 900 of those have been declared vulnerable. Stranded Australian Sunny Joura told Sky News he felt “extremely lucky and grateful” he and his mother had been allocated a seat on the flight so they could escape the “constant fear” experienced where they had been living. 

“All of our neighbourhood was suffering from COVID real bad, we had about 70 per cent of the households infected with COVID,” he said. “People were dying there because of a lack of oxygen and lack of proper health care. “It’s a desperate situation really”.
