More than 900 people have now died in China from the coronavirus that emerged in the central city of Wuhan at the end of last year. The latest figures from the Chinese health officials show that 908 people lost their lives due to the n-CoV epidemic. Notably, the death toll has surpassed the number of fatalities caused by the SARS epidemic in 2003.
As per reports, China is allegedly using drones too to keep a watchful eye over its residents, to ensure they’re taking the appropriate precautions to keep the coronavirus at bay. The drones are also being used to measure residents’ temperatures, without endangering medical staff.
In wake of coronavirus outbreak, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has exempted flight crews from Breath Analyser tests for 15 days at Kerala’s Calicut, Kannur, Trivandrum and Cochin airports. Following the exemption, crew operating flights out of these airports need to mandatorily undergo post-flight BA at the next immediate station. The decision was taken after three positive cases were reported from Kerala.
