Many passengers who have returned to different parts of India from the UK recently have tested positive for Covid-19.
The samples of such UK returnees are being sent to the National Institute of Virology in Pune to detect whether they have been infected by this new strain that is supposed to be 70 per cent more transmissible.
Different state governments are issuing new guidelines to ensure Covid-19 protocols are strictly followed.
The Union ministry of aviation has suspended all flights from the UK to India from December 22 to 31.
