Covid-19 warning: International flights’ passengers to be randomly tested

Canada Global (Web News) In light of the resurgence of Covid-19 cases in neighbouring countries, the government has decided to conduct random testing on 2% of international flight passengers arriving in the country.

Abdul Qadir Patel, the federal health minister, has warned people not to fear because the country’s Covid-19 problem is entirely under control with a positive rate of just 0.5 percent.

He asserted that no one has recently died from Covid-19 in the nation and that the prevalence of Covid-19 positivity is currently between 0.3 and 0.5 percent.

The health minister added that because 90 to 95 percent of people, including eight million children, are immunised, there is no immediate concern of a Covid-19 outbreak in the country due to new forms of the disease.

After attending a meeting of the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) at the National Institute of Health, Islamabad, Patel said, “I would advise people not to worry and not to pay attention to rumours.” At airports around the nation, he added, there was a mechanism in place for surveillance and screening. Sanitizers and disinfectant sprays are also fitted.
