A major health breach occurred on Tuesday night after it was revealed passengers on a flight from Melbourne were able to disembark without undergoing proper screening for coronavirus.

Screening on Jetstar flight JQ520 from Melbourne was compromised after some passengers were able to board without scrutiny.

The airline reported that health officials at Sydney airport were not present to meet passengers as they disembarked, though it had provided the flight manifest and contact tracing details to the health department.

In the ensuing shambles, some passengers from the flight were intercepted by police at baggage reclaim though according to NCA not all passengers were stopped.
