The Indian government is making a concrete plan to bring stranded Indians abroad. This will be done gradually from May 7. Indian citizens stranded abroad will travel by air and by navalhips. The embassies and high commissions of India are preparing a list of Indian citizens in distress. While seats on unforeseen commercial flights will be available for a fee, those who cannot pay will likely pay for the navalships. While the first phase of the repatriation will cover the countries of West Asia, the second phase should cover the United States, the United Kingdom, Malaysia and Iran. The government has already received more than 1.5 lakh requests from Indians stranded in the Arab region. The medical examination of passengers will be carried out before boarding and only asymptomatic passengers will be able to travel. In fact, India is one of the few countries have refused to recover citizens who tested positive. Health protocols must be followed by all passengers. These include signing up for the ArogyaSetu app upon return and quarantining for 14 days, after which they will be tested for Covid-19. The ministry has asked states to organize testing, quarantine and subsequent movement of returning Indians.

Referring to the information shared by the State government on April 30, which “put the mortality at 105”, the committee noted the following: “For a total reported number of 744 + 72 = 816 COVID patients, the mortality rate of 12.8 % is highest in the country. This extremely high mortality rate is a clear indication of low testing and weak surveillance and tracking.”
