New Delhi: The government is now enacting several stringent rules to stop the coronavirus epidemic. Under this, the Central Government has now issued a new guideline. Now every traveller coming to India will have to be quarantined for 14 days. Also, the expenses will also have to be borne by ourselves. Apart from this, many stringent rules will be applicable.
The Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has issued guidelines for travellers arriving in India from abroad via air, sea and land routes, stating that every person entering India must compulsorily undergo 14 days of detention (Quarantine). Travellers coming from abroad will have to stay in institutional confinement for seven days at their expense, while in the home isolation for the remaining seven days. The guidelines issued by the ministry said that before boarding an international flight, passengers will have to give an affidavit that they will remain in the quarantine of 14 days after the completion of the journey.
Exemption in these cases
However, the ministry has said that in certain circumstances people will be exempted from the condition of staying in the detention centre. In this, the death of someone in the family, serious illness or parents of children younger than 10 years can be relieved from the condition of staying in isolation centre with the condition of being in home isolation. Apart from this, it will be mandatory for everyone to have the Aarogya Setu app on their phone.
The Ministry has also issued strict guidelines regarding international flights. The ministry has said that passengers will be given a list of ‘what to do, what not to do’ from the airlines/booking agency along with the tickets. Apart from this, there will be thermal screening before boarding and such passengers will be allowed to boarding, who will pass the screening.
