Rapid testing teams would monitor the home quarantined people, those found symptomatic would be tested at hospitals and isolation centres, he said making it clear his government would not rely on any certificates of testing from any part of the country or the world.

He cited example of returnees from Maharashtra and Rajasthan, as well as Dubai, who carried medical certificates showing Covid-19 negative but tested coronavirus positive on reaching the state.

Those returning to India via special international flights are required to undergo institutional quarantine, as per the central government guidelines.

With a large number of Punjabis returning home, and more businesses being keen on resuming activities, the Chief Minister underlined the need for strict caution. “We have kept the situation under control and will not let the pandemic spread further,” he said.

The Chief Minister said there was likelihood of infection from Punjabis returning home, and the state was taking no chances and had made elaborate arrangements for their testing and quarantine.

Five flights came on Saturday. Over 20,000 people are expected to come from abroad on 88 flights, and 60,000 from other states. “I will not let this infection spread any further in Punjab,” he said.
