India's reply to Britain, British citizens will have to stay in quarantine, the test will have to be done twice
On Corona vaccination, the Indian government has given a befitting reply to Britain in its language. The way the British government did not give any preference to those who took the vaccine in India, on the same lines, the Indian government has also decided to retaliate. Every British national arriving in India from October 4 onwards will have to undergo a mandatory 10-day quarantine at a residence or designated center. It does not matter whether they have got any vaccine or not. After coming to India, he will also have to undergo an RT-PCR test twice. By the way, talks are also going on between the two countries to recognize the certificate of corona vaccination and if there is some agreement within two days, then the proposed guidelines can be relaxed.
Sources in the Ministry of External Affairs said that new guidelines can be issued by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Civil Aviation on October 3. Broadly speaking, it has now been decided that an RT-PRC check will be made mandatory for every British citizen within 72 hours of boarding a flight to India. On reaching India, he will have to get another RT-PCR done at the airport immediately. After this, they will have to compulsorily stay in quarantine for 10 days at home or other designated place. Meanwhile, on the eighth day, he will have to get the RT-PRC investigation done again. All this information will have to be given to them on a prescribed website. Although there is still a rule that British citizens have to stay in quarantine for seven days, but it is not strictly followed. The purpose of the new guidelines is that now they will be strictly implemented.
This entire controversy has arisen from the new travel guidelines from the British Government recently. These UK guidelines will also come into effect from October 4. The anti-corona vaccine certificate being put in 17 countries of the US and the European Union has been exempted from this. That is, there will be no restriction on the citizens of these countries getting the vaccine. In this, Britain's Indian version of AstraZeneca has not been exempted from Covishield, to which India had raised strong objections. The extent was reached when the British government made this amendment that if any citizen of the countries whose names have been mentioned on his behalf has taken the Indian Kovidshield in his country, then he will be allowed to come unabated, but if this vaccine is taken in India, he will be Will have to get tested and stay in quarantine. Among the countries for which Britain has given the green signal, the situation of Kovid in many countries is worse than in India. The vaccination situation is also no better than in India. This is the reason why External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar in a meeting with the British Foreign Minister in America called it a discriminatory rule.
Australia recognized Covishield
Australia on Friday announced the recognition of Covishield of Indian company Serum Institute of India (SII). This will greatly facilitate the students studying in Australia and Indians going there for employment and tourism. Australia's regulatory agency Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has included Covishield and China's Cyanovac as approved vaccines.
