    thus far SL handled the covid situation rather well. Well done to everyone involved!!!! Now its time for another step. Increase the speed of results or have a center established close to BIA. Since PCR tests are taken prior to boarding (allowed to board only if negative) and another is carried out upon landing, better hold the passengers in isolation for few hours pending results and if found negative send them home. perhaps get them to do another test after 10 days while getting them to self quarantine within this period. and use the facilities to the maximum potential for positive cases thus save on expenses i.e transport, food etc etc on negative cases.
