Covid tests for returning air passengers will be needed for years, even with Covid vaccine

Airline passengers will need to take Covid-19 tests before flying long after a vaccine for the viral infection is introduced. This has been admitted by the CEO of Heathrow Airport, John Holland-Kaye. The time required for a global vaccine roll-out means testing must go hand-in-hand with inoculation if there is to be much international travel in the next few years. “Even with the UK getting early access to a vaccine it’ll take a year and a half to vaccinate the entire country,” Holland-Kaye told Bloomberg TV. “It’s going to take much longer before even the fastest vaccine can really have a massive impact around the world.”  Though there is now optimism that the first vaccine might come in to use in the next few months,  it’s not clear how air-transport regulators will respond and how quickly people will be allowed to fly (or want to). People would still need to be tested before their arrival, on arrival, and perhaps 5 and 7 days after arrival – with quarantine before given a final clear test.  It will depend how other countries are dealing with immunisation and infection reduction.  And young people are not going to get the vaccine quickly. .Tweet Heathrow Says Covid Tests Needed for Years Even With Vaccine By Christopher Jasper, Guy Johnson, and Mary Schlangenstein (Bloomberg) 11 November 2020 Airline passengers will need to take Covid-19 tests before flying long after a vaccine for the viral infection is introduced, according to the head of th
