The border between New South Wales and Victoria in Australia has been closed to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
The cities of Albury and Wodonga on either side of the border are usually divided by just the Murray River. But now the communities are separated by a police checkpoint and residents need a permit to cross it.
Families have been separated and businesses are struggling as a result. This new lockdown measure could last “weeks not days”.
