ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Australia working towards travel bubble with Singapore; wants to make it quarantine hub | The World” – below is their description.
The Australian government is hoping a travel bubble with Singapore will become operational in July. The deal could also see the island nation being used as a quarantine hub, so travellers entering Australia via Singapore won’t have to quarantine in Australia, and thousands of Australians stranded overseas could possibly get home sooner. Yvonne Yong reports.
