Australia allows people who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter
According to Australian health sector figures, New South Wales, the country’s most populous state, recorded 8,864 new cases of COVID-19 and two deaths on July 3.
The second most populous state, Victoria, recorded 8,368 new cases and 22 deaths.
Some Australian epidemiologists have called on the government to approve a fourth shot of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The new decision means that as of July 6, anyone entering Australia will not need to declare covid-19 vaccination status or apply for a vaccination waiver as before.
On July 3, Australian Health Minister Mark Butler announced that as of July 6, people entering the Oceania country will not be required to receive at least two full doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
