The Maharashtra government has issued a notification that demands a mandatory Covid negative report for people travelling to Maharashtra from Kerala. The government has said that all passengers coming from Kerala will have to show RT-PCR negative test reports. The Standard Operating Procedures were released in continuation with the order released on November 23, 2020, by Maharashtra government. Similar travel restrictions are already there for people coming to Maharashtra from Delhi, Rajasthan, Goa and Gujarat.
Some pointers on the mandate
- The passengers without any symptoms will be allowed entry into the state
- Passengers with symptoms would have the option of going back to their home to recover
- Passengers with symptoms will be made to undergo an Antigen Test after segregation. If the test comes negative, the passengers will be allowed to travel in Maharashtra
- The RT-PCR sample collection must have been done in under 96 hours before arrival in Maharashtra
The travel restrictions for the people coming from Kerala comes a day after Kerala’s active cases touched 64,390—the highest in the country. Again, of the total 1,41,511 active cases in India, Maharashtra’s Covid-19 cases stand at 35,917.
People coming from Kerala without the RT-PCR test report would have to undergo RT-PCR test at the concerned airports at their own cost. Only after taking the tests, would the passengers be allowed to go home. Those who test positive will be treated as per the protocol.
Kerala's CM Pinarayi Vijayan has said that after the October peak, the number of cases has seen a decline. The active cases touched 72,891 on January 24 and dipped to 67,650 on February 7. He said that the situation was still serious and that the vigil against Coronavirus is continuing. He added that the state's fight against the virus is going in the right direction. Ernakulam, with 811 cases has the maximum number of active cases. Also, Kollam has 689 and Kozhikode, 652 cases in Kerala.
