The ban will be held from 11.59 pm on December 22 to 11.59 pm on December 31. Those who will reach India by British flights till midnight today will have RT-PCR test done at the airport itself.

Oman has also banned international flights for a week. Due to this, Air India flights will neither fly to Oman nor will a flight come to India from December 1 to the next one week. Air India has released its information.

The altered form of the corona virus has been found in Britain. It is named VUI-202012/01. It is feared that it will spread 70% more infection than the earlier virus. Due to this, there is an atmosphere of panic in India. On the other hand, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan has said that there is no need to panic with the new strain of Coronavirus found in Britain. The government is alert about this.

50% people said that flights are closed

On Monday, the social media community LocalCircles surveyed 7091 people in Delhi amid panic of the changed form of the virus. Of these, 50% said that flights to and from the newly affected countries of the Coronavirus, including Britain, South Africa, should be discontinued immediately.

Saudi also sealed the border
The Saudi Arabian government has imposed a one-week ban on international flights. Saudi has also sealed its borders for a week. The government has said that those who have come to Saudi from European countries will have to remain in self-isolation for two weeks. Those who have come from Europe or areas with new corona strains in the last three months will have to undergo a corona test. Meanwhile, Turkey has also temporarily banned flights coming from Britain, Denmark, South Africa and the Netherlands.

Opposition also demanded to stop the flight
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot also appealed to the Center to stop the aircraft coming to and from Britain. In this regard, he posted several successive posts on social media.

On the other hand, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal called the new form of coronavirus a superspeeder.

New form of virus can be 70% more dangerous than before
Mutations occur continuously in the virus, that is, its properties change. Most variants end up by mutation on their own, but sometimes it becomes many times stronger and more dangerous than before. This process happens so fast that scientists do not even understand one form and a new form comes out. Scientists estimate that the new form of coronavirus found in Britain may be 70% more dangerous than before.
