The University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, Australia, showed support for India as the nation continues to battle against the second wave of COVID-19. The University lit its Library tower in Indian tricolour on May 14 to show solidarity with Indian students, friends, faculty, and staff. The lit-up building also bore the message, “Stay strong India … And all suffering from the pandemic". The images were shared by the University on its Twitter handle.
Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison has put an end to the temporary suspension of flights to and from India. In a post shared on Facebook, the Australian PM said, “The temporary pause on flights from India to Australia ends and facilitated commercial flights by the Australian Government will resume as promised, with a strict pre-flight testing regime to keep Australians safe.”
