  1. Nonsense. Just because he had connecting he was allowed to travel? RIDICULOUS.
    Why test anyone at airports and at borders then? So that if they have valid reason and corona then just let them go?

  2. Really shameful.. Why Airports authority let him walk free like unexploded bomb..? Why authority is playing with lives of innocents..? Don’t know with how many he had shared public places..? Enquiry should be made in this case, how he escaped/managed to travel freely.

  3. Unless his test reports are found to be negative he shouldn’t have left the airport. This is foolishness of the highest level. The authorities should be punished for this. Shame on the concerned at Airport , officials of health dept and in total govt..
