Repatriation flight goes empty to China | India News

NEW DELHI: A Vande Bharat repatriation flight flew empty to Guangzhou after two Indians who had flown to China in an earlier flight tested positive for Covid-19. China was not keen to receive passengers from India as it looks to check the spread of what’s effectively the second wave of the novel coronavirus spread in that country.
Official sources said that it was mutually agreed that the aircraft will not take passengers from here. “This was pre-decided and the passengers were informed by the Indian authorities well in advance,” a source here said.
The passengers included family members of some Indian diplomats. The repatriation flight later returned with about 80 Indians from Guangzhou. An earlier repatriation flight to Shanghai from India had two passengers who tested positive for Covid-19 on their arrival.
