    The quarantine system of the Australian hotel has been a first extremely effective defense line against Covid-19.

    The country has greatly eliminated the virus, often spending weeks without a locally acquired infection. The quarantine of the hotel is credited with a large part of that success.

    But a series of local cases isolated in recent months, all from hotel quarantine leaks, have caused alarm.

    Since November, three cities have entered pressure blockages in the back of such infections, with the aim of detecting outbreaks at their origin.

    But, how does the virus follow by sliding through what officials are a great "world-class" defense?

    The first time the system failed

    since March of last year, Australia has essentially only allowed them to return to residents who enter To the country, as long as they complement a quarantine of 14 days, usually at the city's hotels.

    So far, more than 211,000 people have gone through this quarantine. It is an expensive but effective method that is used in just some other nations such as New Zealand, South Korea and Singapore.

    but if The virus is somehow escaping to quarantine, the consequences can be severe. Melbourne saw this past month of July when a quarantine traveler infected a hotel guard, who unconsciously took the virus in the community. The resulting outbreak represents more than 90% of the 29,000 cases of Australia and 909 deaths to date.

    Finally, after a punishment block, Melbourne's outbreak was suppressed. The consultations led to better prevention and tracing efforts of infections in all states. In particular, the quarantine of the hotel pressed.

    Despite this, quarantine breaches have caused the only Australian virus darnings in recent times: in Adelaide in November; In Brisbane last month, and in Perth and Melbourne last week.

    in each case, the hotel staff without knowing it captured the virus and took in the community. None of these workers had not complied with any security protocol, officials say.

    So, how is the virus escaping?

    At the time of Melbourne outbreak, the rules were lower. It was found that the guards had socialized together and worked at different hotels, and there were guards reports that are mixed with quarantine travelers.

    These days, however, the rules aim to avoid any contact of this type. The staff adhere to the rigorous cleaning standards, use PPE and keep their distance.

    As a result, many epidemiologists believe that only air transmissions are causing cases to escape, most likely through hotel runners.

    Several state governments have recognized that this is a possibility, but rejected suggestions that have not taken enough action to prevent it.

    Prof Michael Toole, of the Burnet Institute, adds that with more infectious variants that emerge, it is not surprising that we are seeing more "fires To the point "in hotels.

    But even with the Adelaide gap, which preceded the most transmissible variants: it is suspected that a security guard was infected while sitting in a hall outside a room.
