Due to the coronavirus outbreak, India has issued a travel advisory on Singapore and asked its citizens to avoid all non-essential travel to the south-east Asian business hub.
This was decided at a high-level review meeting taken by Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba on COVID-19.
Four new countries are being added to the list for screening at airports. After a detailed review, in addition to the universal screening as per earlier advisories, universal screening at airports is now being planned for flights from Kathmandu, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Malaysia.
