Six passengers, including three women, were not allowed to board Air India's Dubai-bound flight at the Indore airport today after they were found infected with coronavirus, a health official said.
"As per protocol, every passenger boarding the weekly Indore-Dubai flight has to undergo a rapid RT-PCR test at the airport. Today, 67 passengers were tested (in the morning) and the results of six passengers came out positive," Priyanka Kourav, medical officer of the Madhya Pradesh health department, told news agency PTI.
She said that two of the six infected passengers are from Bhopal and four from Indore.
"Of the six, five passengers had received both doses of anti-coronavirus vaccines while a woman passenger is inoculated with four jabs of two different vaccines," Ms Kourav said.
All six passengers are asymptomatic. They were sent back to their homes with advice to isolate themselves.
