Britain had to bow down after India’s retaliation for the recognition of the Corona Vaccine Coveshield. UK Ambassador to India Alex Ellis said that no Indian traveler who has taken both doses of Covishield in India will have to be quarantined. These rules will come into effect from October 11. Indian travelers who have taken all doses of Covishield or a UK-recognized vaccine will only need to produce a vaccine certificate in the UK.
UK did not recognize Covishield
The UK has not yet recognized the WHO-recognized India’s Coveshield, due to which Indian students and other Indians would have to stay in Quarantine for 10 days upon reaching the UK. India also retaliated by making a 10-day quarantine necessary for British nationals arriving in India.
The UK had included some countries in the Red List, under which travelers coming from those countries are required to stay in the hotel quarantine for 10 days after reaching the UK and also have to undergo a corona test two days before the end of this time. This rule is also applicable for those who have taken both doses of the vaccine.
India is currently placed in the Amber List. This means that passengers going from here will have to undergo a COVID-19 test three days before the journey. On the second day of arrival in the UK, the traveler is required to undergo a corona test again. Pre-travel testing is also necessary for people who have taken both doses of the vaccine.
In response to the restrictions imposed by the UK on Indians over the Corona epidemic, on 1 October, the rules of 10 days compulsory quarantine were also implemented in India against British citizens. The condition of corona test was also laid.
