Australian patrols watching Papua New Guinea coastline amid COVID concerns

Australian Border Force is monitoring the Papua New Guinea coastline amid concern Indonesia’s COVID-19 outbreak could leak into Australia.

In the Torres Strait, a Border Force Patrol boat has been watching the PNG coastline for signs of movement to catch anyone illegally trying to cross into Australia.

There has been some difficulty in determining whether boats heading towards the border are doing so for fishing purposes or trying to enter the country illegally.
