In addition to it, passengers have been advised to only resort to international air travel if they are healthy, do register any symptoms and are not affected by any viral illnesses, for it might prove to be a hurdle in gaining access to foreign countries who have imposed strict guidelines, SOPs and preventive measures to curb the virus spread.
