How to avoid travel restrictions in Argentina, Cuba and other countries
AUSTRALIA has imposed travel restrictions on all of its 28 countries and territories.
The move comes amid a global pandemic and as the European Union struggles to deal with the fallout.
More than a million people have died worldwide since the pandemic began, and more than 30,000 Australians have been infected.
Many people are now in quarantine in some countries, with more than 4,000 people on quarantine in Argentina alone, according to an analysis by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.
The EU is also restricting travel to Argentina.
“We are going to have restrictions on some countries,” EU commissioner for migration Dimitris Avramopoulos told reporters.
The new restrictions apply to Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
The restrictions were introduced this week after Australia imposed its own restrictions on Wednesday.
In Spain, authorities said a man has tested positive for coronaviruses, and a person was hospitalized in Barcelona after contracting the virus in Madrid.
Authorities in Spain said the man was tested in the country and had been on the watch list for some time.
They also said there is a possibility of a Spanish man who was in contact with the man in Madrid, who tested positive, becoming ill in Spain.
In Italy, authorities issued an order to halt all air flights to the country.
They said a Spanish person had been tested and confirmed positive for the virus.
