After reports that some people are travelling to Pakistan on fake medical reports showing them coronavirus negative, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Monday issued new guidelines for all airlines operating in Pakistan

According to 24NewsHD TV, some passengers traveled to Pakistan on PCR (a polymerase chain reaction) test reports with a fake negative result. The authority declared that such passengers endangered fellow travelers in airplanes and also undermined national efforts to control Corona in the country.

As per new guidelines introduced by the CAA, only the certified laboratories PCR test reports would be accepted for travelers coming to Pakistan from abroad. The passengers without correct QR Code (Quick Response Code) could also not be eligible to travel to Pakistan, the authority said, adding that any copy of the PCR test report would also not be acceptable at Pakistani airports.
