7th May, first flight carried passengers from UAE to Kochi and this first phase continued upto 13th May. Second phase of bringing the stranded people from 31 countries in 149 flights will begin from 16th May. When these passengers arrive at Indian Airports,
They will be subjected to 14 days quarantine under 3 categories. If the passenger is having the symptoms of COVID 19, they will be quarantined for 14 days at the Government designated centres. If the passenger is above 60 years or with co morbidity will be at Government centre for 7 days and 7 days should be under home quarantine, people without any symptoms will be asked to be quarantined at their Home for 14 days.
