Source Title: new anti epidemic measures launched in Canada
Xinhua news agency, Ottawa, January, 29 (reporter Li Baodong) in order to avoid people’s unnecessary travel abroad, Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau announced new COVID-19 prevention and control measures on 29 th, including suspending flights from Canada to the Caribbean and Mexico, and forced detection and isolation of all passengers through aviation.
According to the new measures, all those who have passed the air entry must first undergo a new coronavirus test, and then go to a hotel designated by the government for isolation until the test results are obtained, up to three days at their own expense. Those with negative test results can go back to their homes for 14 days to complete self isolation, during which the relevant government departments will closely follow up; those with positive test results must go to the places designated by the government for isolation treatment. The above measures will take effect in the next few weeks.
The new measures also stipulate that all international flights will only be allowed to land at airports in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Calgary. The new measure calls for the suspension of flights from major Canadian Airlines to the Caribbean and Mexico from January 31 to April 30. In addition, in the next few weeks, non essential travelers entering Canada from the land border will also be required to produce a negative report of the new coronavirus test results.
To further prevent and control COVID-19, the Canadian government has asked the overwhelming majority of passengers over the age of 5 to provide air passengers with a negative test result within 72 hours before departure, and to receive 14 days mandatory quarantine after entry.
By the afternoon of the same day, 769736 cases had been confirmed, 19782 cases had died and 694501 cases had been cured, Canadian television reported on the 29th.
