Latest guidelines for international passengers arriving in India, Do you think India is getting even with British Nationals? Do think India or a British country or any country should take covid-19 lightly and use easy tactics? Should different countries’ governments allow to play with people’s lives?
In response to similar measures on Indian nationals, fully vaccinated British nationals must attend 10-day mandatory quarantine.
The action comes after India’s Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla described Britain’s refusal to recognize the Covishield vaccine, developed by AstraZeneca, as “unjust.” He has threatened serious actions if London did not rethink.
Beginning Monday, all British immigrants, regardless of vaccination status, must have a negative COVID-19 test. This test should be 72 hours before departure. Then a second test upon arrival, and a third test eight days later will be conducted.
According to a foreign ministry official who spoke to The Associated Press news agency, a 10-day mandatory quarantine period will also be implemented.
Last month, as per the British government fully vaccinated can skip quarantine. But they should be vaccinated under American, British, or European programs, by a recognized health agency.
Indians have received vaccination from AstraZeneca vaccines made in India by the Serum Institute of India. Others have received COVAXIN, an Indian-made vaccine that is not used in the United Kingdom.
After stopping exports due to a rise in local infections, India, the world’s largest vaccine producer, stated earlier this week that it will resume contributions of extra coronavirus vaccinations.
Rejected immunization certificates of Britain citizens might raise vaccine hesitancy. Countries that have got multiple AstraZeneca vaccines from the British government are perplexed. They are trying to understand why their vaccination programs are useless by the vaccine’s manufacturer.
It is awful to see such a response and people want more humanity and collaboration.
