Madrid, Jul 9 (EFE) .- The Government has extended until July 24 the mandatory ten-day quarantine for travelers arriving in Spain from India, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus variant detected in that country, as published this Friday by the Official State Gazette (BOE).
The measure is mandatory for all travelers arriving from any airport in India, with or without stopovers, during the ten days after their arrival, which will be seven if the passenger takes a PCR and gives negative. The aeronautical personnel necessary for air transport activities are exempt.
During the quarantine, they must remain in their home or accommodation and limit access by third parties. They also have to restrict their travels to essentials, such as acquiring food, pharmaceuticals or basic necessities, attending health centers or for reasons of force majeure.
Although there has been a decrease in infections and deaths in the Republic of India, the presence of the delta variant accounts for more than 95% of all cases, so the Government considers that the circumstances that justified this order on the quarantine conditions for people from that country.
