A week-long quarantine mandatory for Int’l passengers on arrival in Bengaluru

Bengaluru: International passengers who test negative for COVID-19 upon arrival in Bengaluru will be quarantined for seven days before being tested again after a week. Rural District Health Officer Tippeswamy said

 "On arrival in Bengaluru, all overseas travellers who test negative for COVID will be quarantined for seven days." After 7 days, they will be checked again. After examining Kannur International Airport Ltd (KIAL) airport on Monday,  "598 such travellers are under surveillance." the statement read

Two people who returned from South Africa tested positive for COVID-19, prompting fears about the novel variety 'Omicron.' Tippeswamy also met with key officials from the health and aviation departments. "For passengers travelling from high-risk nations, we also undertake RT PCR tests at the airport. If they are proven to be negative, they will be placed in quarantine at home. If the traveller tests positive, they will be taken to a special hospital where they will be isolated "he said

The sample of one of the two South African returnees appears "different from the Delta variation," according to Karnataka's health minister on Monday. Experts say the Omicron form contains "concerning" alterations that could make it more transmissible and immune-evading. Vaccines, however, remain an important tool, according to the experts.
