India may soon be added to Ireland’s mandatory hotel quarantine list

DUBLIN: Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney has said that India is likely to be included in the list of mandatory hotel quarantine in Ireland as the COVID-19 situation worsens in India. The minister said yesterday that an announcement would be made in the next 48 hours.

India is struggling to cope with the rising incidence of corona virus infection. Ireland takes immediate action as India records the highest single-day COVID-19 cases in the world for the fourth day in a row yesterday.

In an RTE program, the Minister stated that the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) would recommend that India be added to the hotel quarantine list, and that action would be taken as soon as that recommendation is received.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin had stated earlier that the decision will be taken this week.

Italy also banned Indian travellers yesterday in order to avoid the spread of the B.1.617 variant of the Indian virus.

Minister Coveney said that India is facing serious challenges and this is a warning to the rest of the world. The Minister said that Ireland is ready to assist India by providing oxygen and ventilators. Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has also stated that Ireland will work with the European Union to support India.
