Thetraveljunkie.org – Australia’s prime minister has ordered a 14-day self-isolation for anyone arriving in the country to try to halt the spread of the coronavirus. And, today we bring you the photos which we took from our self-isolation for 14 days at Punthill Apartment Hotel South Yarra Grand in Melbourne, Australia.
The 11th day was the toughest day for 14 days of quarantine in Melbourne, Australia. In the morning, Bojoku got flu, sore throat and headache. I think that’s just Psychosomatic. And, on the 12th day was answered. Right.
The 11th day, Bojoku called the COVID-19 hotline. Interviewed via phone for a while, then told to come to the nearest COVID-19 clinic. Must not take public transportation. Then, she walked 20 minutes to the COVID-19 clinic. If there are no symptoms, you couldn’t test COVID-19.
Up in front of the COVID-19 clinic there were doctors waiting. Then, before entering the clinic she had to use sanitizer. Then, she was given a sticker with her name and number and a test-kit.
Then, she was told to follow the blue path to the test room. The test room was covered in plastic, and there was a monitor with a video tutorial on how to test. There is no one to help. She had to insert the test kit into the mouth and nostrils as deep as approximately 2cm.
Then, she placed the results of the test into the bag, left the test room and a nurse told her to put the test bag in the box that has been prepared.
Before going out she was told to use sanitizer again.
And next day, on the 12th day after 30 hours the test results have been texted. Negative!
