    What is the logic? Disembarking passengers from boats stopped, disembarking passengers from aircrafts are allowed. This is the same mistake Japan made.

    I agree with your comment and people arriving in aircraft are more dangerous than cruise ship arriving from Australia. Politician are not rational in making decision.
