Every 100,000 travellers passing through quarantine in Australia and New Zealand has come with an average six “failures” – and experts warn that risk may increase as the Covid-19 pandemic burns on.
In a new analysis, Otago University researchers found that, up until March 31, there had been 14 “failures” in quarantine systems in Australia, and 10 here.
One led to an outbreak that killed an estimated 800 people, while nine resulted in lockdowns.
For both countries, the failure risk for those transiting quarantine was estimated at 6.3 failures per 100,000 travellers – and 5.8 per every 1000 positive cases of the virus.
