Quarantine period is being reduced, first 10 then 7 and now only 5 days, know why

New Delhi: The corona pandemic has had a profound and bad effect on the economies of countries around the world. All countries are now making changes on the Corona protocol to speed up economic activities. Taking a big decision on Thursday, the UK Government has reduced the time limit of the Quarantine period once again. The government said that in order to accelerate economic activity, it has now been decided to reduce the quarantine period of corona infected people from seven days to just five days.

Announcing the changes, Health Secretary Sajid Javid said that the government will review the policy to avoid risking infectious people coming out of quarantine and at the same time increase economic activity. Javid said that as far as possible our freedom should not be restricted even for a day.

The Health Secretary said that the corona test will be mandatory for those who come out of the quarantine and the quarantine can be ended only when the report comes negative. It is worth noting that before this, the Government of England had reduced the quarantine period from 10 days to five days just before Christmas and once again the government has amended the quarantine rules.

A UK health protection agency also conducted a study regarding the quarantine period, in which it emerged that eight percent of people would still be contagious on the fifth day, while on the seventh day it remains only 6.2 percent. Along with this, another study also shows that Omicron is much milder than other variants of Kovid and it has been revealed in the report that the risk of hospitalization is also up to 50 percent less than that of Delta.

Health Secretary Javid said data from the UK’s Health Protection Agency showed that nearly two-thirds of positive Covid cases were not contagious by the end of five days of stay at home.

Let us tell you that the corona epidemic has wreaked havoc in Europe and its worst outbreak has been seen in Britain. More than 1.5 lakh people have died here due to Kovid-19 virus. There has also been a huge wave of the new variant of Corona, Omicron, which started in the last month but has now reduced to some extent.
