The question was asked by Congress MP Manish Tewari. He asked, Why WHO and International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) cannot evolve a Minimum Operating Procedure so that double-vaccinated passengers do not have to go through repeat RTPCR tests when they travel.

New Delhi: The Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia while answering in Question Hour said, that the restrictions are necessary to ensure the safety of the people even if they have got both doses of the vaccination. The parliament is debating on the possible impact of fresh restrictions on the tourism and civil aviation sector following the detection of the Omicron variant of Covid-19.

Jyotiraditya Scindia while responding to a related question said, “Double vaccination does not give us 100 percent immunity. There are breakthrough infections that take place despite double vaccination, and if breakthrough infections take place despite double vaccination, not only you yourself may be very badly harmed but you also have the capability to spread the disease, you need to understand the curbs are necessary.”

The question was asked by Congress MP Manish Tewari. He asked, Why WHO and International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) cannot evolve a Minimum Operating Procedure so that double-vaccinated passengers do not have to go through repeat RTPCR tests when they travel.

Jyotiraditya Scindia asked the opposition to think about it and said “The Covid pandemic has led to a situation the world has not witnessed in 100 years.”
