Mangaluru: DC explains about fresh Covid guidelines in exclusive chat to Daijiworld


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (ANK)

Mangaluru, Dec 5: In view of the discovery of the new variant of Covid-19, Omicron, the state government has mandated rigorous screening and testing of international arrivals from foreign countries.

Deputy commissioner (DC) Dr K V Rajendra spoke exclusively to Daijiworld and explained about the guidelines.

He said, “Pertaining to international passengers, there are 2 categories – the risk countries and non-risk countries. Eleven including the European countries, South Africa, Brazil, Singapore and Hong Kong have the new variant. Gulf countries are non-risk countries for now.”

Risk countries

International passengers before boarding from risk countries will have to procure the RT-PCR negative report not older than 72 hours.

The passengers coming from risk countries should be quarantined for 7 days even if they are tested negative. On the 8th day, they should undergo the RT-PCR test. If 8th day test is negative, they can go home and monitor their health.

Non-risk countries

Passengers coming from non-risk countries will have to procure the RT-PCR negative report not older than 72 hours. Two per cent of the passengers will be tested randomly here. If they are tested negative, they should undergo 14 days of health monitoring at home. If tested positive, they will be sent to the isolation centres. The passengers sitting beside, three rows behind and front of the positive-tested passenger will be tested.

Health monitoring is not quarantine, but it is like taking care of their health to be safer and the society to be safer.

The ministry of Civil Aviation and Health are accessing the daily condition and releasing the list of risk countries. As of now, the Gulf countries are not risk countries.

Passengers coming from Kannur airport

Passengers coming to the district from Kannur airport should posses RT-PCR negative report not older than 72 hours while boarding. They should have proof of travel which can be shown at Talapady border and reach the district.

Travellers from Kerala and Maharashtra reaching Karnataka through bus, train or flight

Airlines have been instructed to issue boarding pass only if there is a negative report. Regular checks will be conducted at Mangaluru airport.

Travellers by road and train should get RT-PCR negative report not older than 72 hours.

Even though one has received two doses of the vaccine, RTPCR negative report is compulsory for Kerala and Maharashtra travellers.

    Million dollar question is whether humans came first or viruses? Viruses existed since millions of years and our ancestors have defeated them from thousands of years without any medicines or vaccines. How long can we sustain panic and fear continuing protocols like masks and lockdowns for around 1,20,000 estimated viruses? Is it possible to find solution of vaccines for each and every viruses which too requires our Natural Immune System to work to provide immunity. If our immune system isn't working then no vaccines will work. The easier solution is to help our bodies with proper diet and lifestyle and letting our natural healing process to keep up-to-date not by running away from them but getting daily dose of bacteria and viruses as it used to be until humans devised a raw form of vaccine since last century. Time to go back to our roots and revert to Ayurvedic and Naturopathic systems which heal without side effects of modern medical science oriented on greedy and corrupt pharma mafia. Wake up and end this planndemic hoax and tyranny.

    Humans didn't defeat anything, at time of independence lifespan in India was 45, humans mostly died just our fertility rates allowed us to survive, just ask any child person with polio deformities. Just take vaccine and pray.

    It seems you know very little about vaccines and viruses. Humans were fit and lived beyond 100 in the past due to healthy diet and unprocessed food along with organic cultivation which sustained all life form in the soil was helping them to come across all viruses and without any medicines they overcame them even not knowing they had been infected as no test was available. Regarding polio you are not the only person to believe lies and propaganda. Just listen to Dr B M Hegde about it to know the truth. Every year after polio drops 50,000 kids in India suffer polio but as our country was declared polio free a new name like Acute Non Polio Paralytic Stroke is given to it. Live polio virus is given through drops which is banned all over the world as they shed viruses for a fortnight infecting malnourished children causing paralysis. Now people are living longer but always with lifestyle diseases and cancers at the mercy of pharma mafia.
