The Delhi government Friday announced that inbound passengers from the United Kingdom will have to spend a week at institutional quarantine centres, essentially designated hotels, even if they test negative after arrival in the city.

The decision comes a day after Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urged the Centre to keep flight services between India and the United Kingdom suspended till January 31 to prevent the transmission of the new variant of the coronavirus.
