COVID-19: Australia to end mandatory isolation

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 30 Sep 2022, 09:16 am

Canberra: The Australian government has said the country will end mandatory enforcing of  Covid isolation from next month.

Currently anyone who tests positive to the virus must isolate for five days, but that will end from 14 October, reports BBC.

Australia had implemented some of the strictest restrictions in the world ever since the pandemic started.

Mandator isolation is one of the main restrictions that still remains.

Australia's chief medical officer, Professor Paul Kelly, said the decision "does not in any way suggest that the pandemic is finished", reports BBC.

"We will almost certainly see future peaks of the virus into the future, as we have seen earlier in this year. However, at the moment, we have very low rates of both cases, hospitalisations, intensive care admissions, aged-care outbreaks," Kelly said.
