Beach SOS leads to rescue of sailors stranded on Pacific isle -

Beach SOS leads to rescue of sailors stranded on Pacific isleThree Micronesian sailors stranded on a tiny island in the remote Western Pacific were rescued after Australian and US warplanes spotted a giant "SOS" they had scrawled on the beach, officials said. The Australian Defence Force said it found the men Sunday on tiny Pikelot Island, about 190 kilometres (115 miles) from where they set sail three days earlier. The men blew off course and ran out of fuel in a seven-metre (23-foot) skiff between two of the 600-plus islands and atolls that make up Micronesia.

Australian state of Victoria to impose hefty fines to compel Covid-19 isolation -

Australian state of Victoria to impose hefty fines to compel Covid-19 isolationAustralia's second-most populous state Victoria said on Tuesday that anyone breaking Covid-19 isolation orders will face hefty fines, as high as A$20,000 (£10,850), and that more military personnel will be deployed to fight the spread of the virus. Australia, once heralded as a global leader in containing Covid-19, is desperately trying to slow the spread of the virus in Victoria to prevent a national second wave of infections. Victoria earlier this week imposed a night curfew, tightened restrictions on people's daily movements and ordered large parts of the local economy to close to slow the spread of coronavirus. But nearly a third of those who contracted Covid-19 were not home isolating when checked on by officials, requiring tough new penalties, Victoria state Premier Daniel Andrews said on Tuesday. Fines of nearly A$5,000 (£2,710) will be issued to anyone breaching stay at home orders. Repeat offenders face a fine of up to A$20,000. "There is literally no reason for you to leave your home and if you were to leave your home and not be found there, you will have a very difficult time convincing Victoria police that you have a lawful reason," Mr Andrews told reporters in Melbourne.
