India is set to suspend most travel to the country in order to control the spread of the coronavirus. The government announced it will be suspending the issue of tourist visas to India beginning midday Friday. So if you’re planning a trip to India, here are a few things you need to know. Firstly, no new tourist or even sales will be issued until the 15th of April. Existing tourist visas on which journeys are yet to begin stand canceled.
Foreign nationals with a compelling reason for travel to India need to contact the relevant Indian mission. And the other thing about this order is that it does not affect foreigners who are already in India and those with visas. Nor does it affect diplomatic, U.N. official or employment visas. Other restrictions come as India reported at least 70 cases of the coronavirus in the country. Most travel-related, at least 17 foreigners have also tested positive. The potential for a bigger spread already has people worried.
New Delhi is junk, but the market is usually a popular stop for travel memorabilia.
Now it lies deserted foreign markets squarely blames the Coronavirus. In six years of running the shop, he had never seen a slump this big over the last two weeks. His sales have dropped by 80 percent. Tourists, both foreign and Indian, are steering clear of marketplaces like this one. For Markin, taking precautions can get in the way of keeping up appearances for the odd shopper who Dustan up. And 0 0, if we have hand sanitizers for employees in the shop, but we can’t wear masks because if people see us wearing them, they’ll wonder what’s wrong with us.
Think let’s stay away from him. And if tourists don’t enter the shop, what’s the point?
We’re hoping to have some store owners desperate for business. See, a whiting journey and public spaces is unnecessary paranoia. But with scores of new cases reported across India this month, the Indian government is taking no chances.
India has revoked the resolve of all foreign nationals. Dahlia +15 Indians, a dining room from affected countries will be quarantined for 14 days. And authorities warn that even those coming back from other countries can be quarantined.
Though the onset of warmer weather means Delhi’s chronic air pollution is finally clearing up, facemasks are still everywhere. The surge in could on our wildest cases have set off massive buying of both mosques and sanitizers. Farmer fees are running out of stock. Your lawyer got me.
People shouldn’t buy multiple masks and sanitizers so that others can get them to get it. Many are stockpiling these items, but they shouldn’t do that. They should think about others too.
The government evacuates more Indians from affected countries. The total count of cases is nearly certain to rise in Delhi. Many residents are ready and are following all the protocols. It Dimebag, the spread of the virus worsens.
We’ll have to stop going out. You know, they’re up. Precautions, precautions. Just it.
But if people take the right precautions, I don’t think things will get that bad.
Which bottom end of the day, if the government should hand out free masks and install sanitizer stations everywhere, they need to educate people about this disease and bacilli guys are going to have Indians wait to see if and how the koruna artists can be controlled in such a densely populated country.
Many are hoping the coming months will provide better news.
So what really are the Indian government’s plans?
How exactly does the Indian government plan on tackling the coronavirus outbreak? Well, the British, the prime minister has constituted a high-level group of ministers, which is meeting regularly and reviewing preparedness and prevention measures across the country. India’s focus is on prevention and especially on the international front because the 70 plus cases that India has seen so far are all related to international travel.
India has suspended the visas of oil foreign nationals. They are even blocking the entry of overseas citizens of India who are usually able to travel visa-free. Even land borders are going to be closely monitored. They’re actually restricting crossing overland borders as well. And they’re also going to set up strict monitoring along these borders. Every Indian returning to the country can also be quarantined and those coming in from specific affected countries will definitely be quarantined for 14 days.
On the domestic front, the Indian government is trying to reassure people that things are under control. They have set up a 24/7 helpline for anyone who may have questions about the coronavirus, about this is about the symptoms. There’s also been an effort to reach absolutely everybody to quality. Not every time an injured person puts out a phone call. They actually should add-in for an informative piece for one minute about precautions to be taken to combat the coronavirus. And there’s also the army and the paramilitary forces who are being called in to set up quarantine facilities, to set up isolation facilities, facilities and testing and medical preparedness for teams on the ground are also being ensured.
This is what the Ministry of Health is continuously put out, putting out, especially over the last two weeks as the numbers surge in India. Despite that, I’m sure India’s health sector is notoriously overburdened, especially when one talks about government hospitals in the country. Is it confidence amongst people that the government can really tackle this outbreak? By British, despite the very vocal and battlement insistence of the government that everything is being done to tackle the Coronavirus, we cannot deny that India’s healthcare infrastructure is notoriously weak.
India has actually amongst the lowest percentage of GDP spending on healthcare and the and the ratio to doctors, to patients as well as nurses, to patients is statistically skewed. That being said, one of the important things that influence public opinion on this is actually the messaging coming out from the. Does the minister of health today spoke in parliament saying everything is under control and spoke at length about the measures that we just spoke about. And the prime minister’s also been tweeting, saying say yes to precautions and say no to panic.
So the messaging so far from the government is that things are all right. And the voices we are hearing on the street are not yet of serious panic. Yes, that has been mass buying of mosques and sanitizes, but people seem to believe that precautions will do the trick. You have to know that the cases are still under 100 in India and already these restrictions are being deployed on travel and all of those other restrictions that have been imposed by the government.
So people have confidence so far. But it would be interesting to see what happens over the next two weeks, especially if the caseload goes up because of one individual just about in Delhi.
