Germany no longer considers India a country with significantly elevated risk of infection

“The German Government has lifted all travel restrictions for persons residing in India, effective Sunday, September 19, 2021. Travel to Germany for all purposes is permitted again from India.

Travellers who received all the required doses of a COVID-19 vaccine cited on the website of the Paul Ehrlich Institute are considered fully vaccinated. A period of at least 14 days must have elapsed since receiving the last vaccine dose. Persons vaccinated with Covaxin or any other vaccine which is not recognised by the Paul Ehrlich Institute have to carry a negative PCR test report which is not older than 72 hours on entry in Germany. Any person entering Germany by plane, regardless of whether they have spent time in a risk or high incidence area, must provide the airline with a negative test result, a vaccination certificate or a recovery certificate.

Widespread use of technology needed to mitigate COVID risk: Alok Sharma

Alok Sharma, CEO& Founder, Shycocan Corporation has claimed that there is a need for widespread use of technology to mitigate the risk of COVID. “We can sure help prevent the next wave and it will give confidence to business and humans to have a more normal life. The incidents, if any, would be less sporadic if it was not adopted in a big way,” he said. He also said Shycocan can work in outdoors and it is effective against mutants of virus as well. “It worked equally well on all mutants because it neutralises the cell positive charge from the virus and it doesn’t kill the virus.

Kerala Travel Mart Society is organising COVID Vaccination Drive

Kerala Travel Mart Society (KTM) is organising a COVID vaccination drive in collaboration with the Kerala Tourism Department, to give priority to those who are working in the tourism sector. The aim is to make Kerala the first 100% tourism vaccinated state in India by providing complete vaccination to those working in the tourism sector and other tourism associates. The motive of KTM is to declare the tourism sector safe by vaccinating everyone who is a part of it. This is essential for the re-opening of tourism in Kerala. To reach this goal, the tourism department has introduced priority vaccination for the age group of 18-44 years and has appointed nodal officers to carry out this task. In addition to this, district-wise KTM members have been appointed as liaison officers to assist nodal officers with this initiative. Baby Mathew Somatheeram, President, KTM Society, has informed that KTM has also launched a vaccination drive in collaboration with private sector hospitals to expedite the vaccination of people of all age groups who are working in the tourism sector. For more information on this vaccination drive and its coordination, KTM has launched a help desk (Phone No. 9747720077). Somatheeram has requested all members of the tourism sector to utilise this opportunity and get vaccinated.
