The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has decided to set up disinfectant tunnels at all airports of the country in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

In a notification issued by the CAA on Tuesday, the tunnels would be installed at the entrance and departure lounges of the airports.

The passing of the passengers through the disinfectant tunnel has been declared mandatory to ensure safety measures and avoid the spread of the coronavirus.
