Indian travellers vaccinated with two doses of Covishield will still have to undergo 10 days of quarantine in the UK even as the vaccine has been approved under the revised British guidelines for travel
Earlier in May, the directorate general of health services (DGHS) had issued extensive guidelines to cease the use of Ivermectin and HCQ in addition to several other drugs from the COVID-19 treatment protocol
The British High Commissioner to India, Alex Ellis said India and the UK "have been having detailed technical discussions regarding certification, with the builders of the CoWIN app and the NHS app, about both apps"
The move comes amid growing protests opposing the supposed discrimination against Indians. Nevertheless, Indians who have taken the Covishield vaccine will still have to remain in quarantine due to ‘certification issue’ according to UK government.
