Random Testing For International Passengers To Start From Today
In response to an increase in cases in China and other nations, India will begin random coronavirus testing for travellers arriving from abroad today. Airlines must instruct their crew members to lead and convey the selected 2% of international passengers to the testing centre at the airport, per the Ministry of Civil Aviation.
Omicron sub-variant BF.7, of which four instances have been identified so far in India, is thought to be the cause of the present uptick in Covid-19 infections in China.
Despite the fact that there were 162 infections in the past day, the number of Coronavirus cases in the nation has been steadily declining. Additionally, nine Covid-related deaths were reported by the country, bringing the total number of fatalities to 5,30,690.
