Corona outbreak is increasing in China. It is believed that by the end of January, the peak of corona will come in China, that is, at that time the cases of corona will be at its peak. Meanwhile, after India, Australia and Canada have also imposed Corona rules on passengers coming from China. Now passengers traveling from China to these countries will need a COVID-19 test. Actually, China suddenly ended the zero covid policy. After this, the corona virus started spreading rapidly across the country and now the whole country is struggling with its outbreak.
Australian health officials said on Sunday that from January 5, all air travelers arriving from China, Hong Kong or Macao would need to show a negative COVID-19 test report within two days of departure. Canadian authorities have announced similar measures, which will go into effect on January 5.
Experts say that this step is not very effective. Kerry Bowman, assistant professor at the University of Toronto's Tertiary Faculty of Medicine, said the need for test reports "isn't based on science this time." It's not the early days of the pandemic, she added. Screening is not very effective. Often people can test positive several days and weeks later." Before Australia and Canada, America, Britain, India, Japan and many European countries have made it mandatory for passengers coming from China to present the corona testing report. China has imposed strict COVID-19 measures on Chinese travelers amid a lack of data on infections and fears of a new variant spreading.
