The authorities of the Australian state of Victoria decided to distribute money to people as support for the period of the coronavirus epidemic.
Local authorities found that many people during the coronavirus pandemic prefer to remain silent about their symptoms and continue to go to work.
In this regard, the state leadership announced one-time payments of 300 Australian dollars to those who pass a test for coronavirus.
If the test is positive, the person will be paid an additional 1.5 thousand Australian dollars.
The state of Victoria now leads in the number of COVID-19 patients. The region has already imposed a quarantine for the second time. This week, the state leadership announced fines for refusing to wear medical masks outside the home.
Earlier, we reported that the UN calls for giving money to the poor.
