Australia imposes travel ban on Iran
Iran became the highest death rate country from coronavirus after China. From a total of five positive coronavirus cases in Australia, two are from Iran. Due to the highest coronavirus death rates in Iran, Australia is planning to ban foreign travellers from Iran. Australian health minister Greg Hunt said that the travel ban on Iran would come into force from Sunday due to high death rate from coronavirus in Iran after China.
“There is likely at this stage a high level of undetected cases and therefore those cases won’t be intercepted or identified on departure from Iran,” Greg Hunt said.
