COVID-19: FG places six-month ban on 100 travellers for shunning PCR test

About 100 international passengers have been placed on six months’ travel restriction for flouting the mandatory seven-day post-arrival COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction test. The decision came barely five days after the Federal Government’s announcement on the planned action against the defaulters.
