Pakistanis Barred from Boarding Flights at Heathrow Airport……

Pakistani nationals are being prevented from boarding flights at Heathrow Airport for fears of the new and unfamiliar strain of the coronavirus that has raised alarms in various countries of the European Union (EU), including the United Kingdom (UK).

A news report this morning revealed that airlines are refusing to board any passengers despite the directive of the government of Pakistan that allows passport holders with negative COVID-19 tests to travel back to the country.

Stranded passengers reportedly staged protests at Heathrow Airport over the refusal of airlines to fly them to Pakistan.

Currently, the new strain of the coronavirus has been detected in some European countries, South Africa, India, Japan, and Pakistan. Many countries of the EU and the Asia Pacific, including Pakistan, have placed strict travel restrictions on traveling after it was detected earlier in December. The UK’s neighboring countries have even closed their borders to it over rising concerns for the worsening pandemic in the region.
