Flights from UK to India are also cancelled

The Indian government has canceled all flights from the UK following the spread of a new strain of coronavirus in European countries.

The current ban lasts until December 31. The ban will then be reviewed after the situation is assessed.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and others have called for the immediate cancellation of services to curb the spread of the virus.

Union Home Minister Harsh Vardhan has said that the Government has taken all necessary steps to control the new corona virus and there is no need to fear unnecessarily.

European countries have suspended flights to the UK following assessments that the spread of the virus was out of control.

The rapid spread of new strain of COVID-19 was confirmed yesterday by the Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty. The findings were reported to the World Health Organization. The BBC reports that flights to Britain have been suspended in Ireland, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium.
