Quarantine must for arrivals in India

NEW DELHI, 4 days ago

India's Civil Aviation Ministry has said anyone travelling to India will be asked to give an undertaking, before boarding flights, that they would undergo mandatory quarantine for 14 days upon reaching their destinations, a report said.
 
One week of this quarantine shall be at institutions, paid for by the passengers, followed by a second week of "isolation at home with self-monitoring of health", said the Wam report quoting the ministry.
 
In exceptional cases of human distress, serious illness, death in the family, pregnancy and parents flying in with children below 10 years of age, receiving states shall assess the situation and may permit home quarantine for the entire 14 days. In such cases those under home quarantine will have to download India’s domestic health monitoring and tracking mobile application known as "Arogya Setu."
 
"On arrival, thermal screening would be carried out of all the passengers by health officials present at the airport. Passengers found to be symptomatic during the screening shall be immediately isolated and taken to medical facilities as per health protocol."
 
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Civil Aviation today released a full list of Phase V repatriation flights by the government-owned low cost carrier, Air India Express. The schedule, running all the way till the end of August includes a large number of flights from airports in the UAE and other GCC countries.
