Covid-19 resurgence: Australia to reduce flights from India

Apr 22, 2021 17:05 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Thursday announced a reduction in flights from high-risk Covid-19 nations, like India, following an alarming rise in coronavirus cases across the world.

After a national Cabinet meeting in Canberra, Morrison said his country will be reducing by some 30 per cent the numbers coming through chartered services in the months ahead.

While the list of high-risk countries was still being finalised, Morrison said the announcement was made keeping in view India's worsening second wave of the coronavirus.
