The new variant of Corona, Omicron, has once again created an atmosphere of fear in the entire country. On one hand, while the World Health Organization (WHO) has asked to be cautious about Omicron, the governments of the states have also swung into action and are taking precautions to avoid infection with this virus. In this sequence, the Maharashtra government has issued necessary guidelines yesterday. At the same time, PM Narendra Modi also held a high level meeting yesterday, in which there has been talk of taking extra vigilance and caution while discussing the situation related to corona virus in the country.
The Maharashtra government has issued strict guidelines for international air travel on Tuesday. The Health Department of Maharashtra said that at present there are 6 such travelers in the state who have recently come to the state from South Africa or other high risk countries and have been found infected in the investigation. He told that at present the samples of all those people have been sent for the test. The department said that apart from him, the people who came in contact with that person are also being questioned.
Travel history will be cross checked
According to the guidelines issued, the information of all the passengers coming on DCP Immigration and FRRO international flights will be collected from the countries they have traveled in the last 15 days and then that information will also be cross checked. During this, if any passenger gives wrong information, then action will be taken against him under the relevant sections of the Disaster Management Act, 2005.
Those coming from high risk countries will have to stay in quarantine for 15 days
At the same time, international passengers coming from high-risk countries will be de-boarded on priority basis and separate counters will be arranged by MIAL and airport authority for their screening. All such passengers will have to compulsorily quarantine for 7-days and undergo RT-PCR test on days 2, 4 and 7. The copy of the order reads, “If any passenger is found positive in that test, then the passenger will be transferred to the hospital. In case all the tests come back negative, the passenger will have to undergo a home quarantine of 7 days.” “
