Travelers entering Western Australia from SA are forced to quarantine as Covid ‘fort’ state introduces strict new rules to exclude new super variant Omicron










An Australian state has slammed its border in response to fears over the new Omicron African strain of Covid-19.

Western Australian Prime Minister Mark McGowan has blocked access to people from South Australia amid rising panic over the new strain of the virus and recent cases of Delta in the neighboring state.
