Prime Minister Narendra Modi will chair a meeting with the federal government on the status of COVID-19 and the vaccine on Saturday. The meeting will take place today at 10:30 am.
The meeting comes at a time when the new version of Covid-19, B.1.1.529 (Omicron), is sending air conditioners around the world.
India also announced that it will resume international flights to and from India from December 15 after 20 months of postponement due to a coronavirus outbreak.
India has also offered some countries the risks that travelers have to comply with additional measures, including medical examinations, upon arrival in India. The countries at risk are the United Kingdom, South Africa, Brazil, Bangladesh, Botswana, China, Mauritius, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Singapore, Hong Kong and Israel.
According to Friday’s decision, companies can recover 50% of the virus before scheduling flights between India and South Africa, Hong Kong and Botswana from December 12.
Meanwhile, many countries, including the UK, Germany, Singapore, Israel, France and Italy, have banned air travel to South Africa, which suffers from a new strain of eating disorders.
