Italy quarantines 242 on board Air India's Amritsar-Rome flight after 30 found COVID-positive

New Delhi:  At least 30 people on board Air India's Amritsar-Rome flight last Wednesday were found positive for COVID-19 on arrival, aviation industry sources said on Monday.

At least two of the 30 people are flight crew members, they added.

All 242 people on board, including those found COVID-positive, have been put under quarantine by the Italian government, the sources said.

Last Thursday, hours before the landing of the Amritsar-Rome flight, the Italian government issued an order, stating that all passengers arriving from India would be put under quarantine for 10 days at a site decided by its officials.

India is struggling with the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic as hospitals in several states are reeling under a severe shortage of drugs, oxygen and beds.
