The below video shows social distancing laws being abused at the Sydney International Airport this morning (26/3/20) which is very disturbing given we know for a fact that people returning from overseas are the number one carriers of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). So why is the federal government failing to enforce the social distancing laws?
The video was filmed by Sally Prosser who posted it on Twitter at @sally_prosser. When she asked the Australian Border Force about Social Distancing being breached the reply was “not our problem, that’s biosecurity.”
The federal government is responsible for Airports in Australia but it is extremely counterproductive when the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller held a press conference yesterday warning people “Coronavirus social distancing breaches could lead to fines and jail time“. Maybe the NSW police should arrest the federal politicians who have failed to enforce the social distancing laws at the Airport.
The failure of the authorities to take proper action at the Airport is almost identical to the Ruby Princess cruise ship scandal, where they allowed 2700 passengers off the cruise to disperse around Australia and abroad, which has been blamed for record rise in NSW COVID-19 cases.
The only option, given the above video, is for the NSW government to take back control of the Airports in their state as the Federal Government are doing nothing to enforce the law.
