P9: FULL STORY 9000 Aussie residents remain stranded in India NINE thousand Australians are still waiting to be repatriated home from India, accounting for a quarter of all Aussies stranded overseas. Figures obtained by the NT News reveal about 9000 Australians are registered in India as wanting to return home as the country faces a coronavirus tsunami. The number of COVID-19 cases across India rose by 346,786 on Saturday for a total of 16.6 million cases. Australia responded to the spike by reducing passenger numbers on flights from India by 30 per cent. Travellers on repatriation flights from India have been largely responsible for a recent spike in COVID-19 cases in the NTs Howard Springs quarantine facility. The latest case, a twoyear-old boy, tested positive yesterday after recently arriving from New Delhi. It brings the NTs total active case tally up to 49. The top five countries where Australians are seeking to return from are India, the UK, US, Thailand and the Philippines, with about 18,000 Australians registered in these countries. A Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesman said their highest priority was helping vulnerable Australians overseas. Over 500,000 Australians have arrived in Australia since the government recommended that people reconsider the need to travel abroad, he said. Since the start of the pandemic, DFAT has helped more than 44,900 Australians return on over 500 flights, including about 18,000 people on 124 government facilitated flights. Around 34,000 people are currently registered with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade as being overseas and wanting to return. Chief Minister Michael Gunner said he was concerned about the evolving situation in India. This, in many respects, increases the humanitarian need to help Australians return from India, which is the purpose of the flights through Darwin, he said.
