No compulsory corporate isolation for returnees to UK in Delhi | Delhi News

NEW DELHI: The Delhi government has lifted the seven-day mandatory corporate segregation rule for travelers coming from the United Kingdom to test negative for Govt-19, so now no one needs to be under corporate segregation.
This decision has been taken at a time when the positive ratio among such individuals is low. All passengers who test negative must now be isolated at home for 14 days. For those who have returned to the UK for a positive test for Covit, the treatment protocol is implemented according to their health.
Seven days of institutional isolation and seven days of home isolation for negative individuals began in the first week of January, when a new variant of the corona virus erupted across the UK. Many UK returnees tested positive for Covit-19, who tested positive for the new variant of the corona virus and were kept in special isolation facilities.
In mid-January, the Delhi government extended the seven-day compulsory corporate isolation rule for returnees to the UK until January 31.
The Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) order said, “The situation has now been reviewed and it has been decided that the level of compulsory institutional isolation of travelers has been negatively tested in view of the low positive rate of returnees and many more are not needed. Federal SOP requires 14 days of home isolation for all UK returnees tested.
On all international flights all passengers from the UK are subjected to mandatory self-pay RT-PCR checks upon arrival at the airport. Positive testing passengers are isolated in an institutional isolation facility. Their samples are sent to the genetic sequence to determine if they are infected with the new corona virus variant and according to the severity of the case treatment protocol.
The DTMA has ordered strict surveillance on persons who have been negatively tested at the airport and placed in home isolation. District officials are conducting Govt tests on individuals who develop coronavirus-like symptoms during home isolation, and if a person tests positive, a comprehensive contact trail follows.
Dozens of people who returned from the UK from November 25 to December 22 (before the government banned all flights from the UK), and who lived in Delhi, were tested positive by Govt during house-to-house inspections. They were admitted to Lok Nayak Hospital, which created a special isolated ward to house returnees from the UK suspected of being infected with the new corona virus variant.
