Following the coronavirus spread to other parts of the world, India has issued a travel advisory on Singapore and asked its citizens to avoid all non-essential travel to the south-east Asian business hub. The decision was taken in a high-level meeting chaired by the Cabinet Secretary on Novel Coronavirus (COVID19).
Four new countries are added to the list for screening at airports. “After a detailed review, in addition to the universal screening as per earlier advisories, universal screening at airports is now being planned for flights from Kathmandu, Indonesia, Vietnam and Malaysia,” a Govt release states.
Also, in furtherance to the travel advisory issued earlier, citizens are advised to avoid all non-essential travel to Singapore.
As on date, 21,805 passengers have been brought under community surveillance. In addition, 3,97,152 flight passengers and 9,695 travellers at seaports have been screened.
