The Chinese embassy in the United Kingdom has declared Covid-19 test reports issued by the National Health Service (NHS) invalid as health certificates for China-bound travelers due to growing numbers of imported cases from the country.

According to a statement issued by the Chinese embassy on Saturday, the invalidation of negative NHS test results took effect on Nov. 14. Despite stringent travel requirements already being in place, the statement said that several China-bound travelers from the U.K. had recently been confirmed to have the virus after arrival.

Citing U.K. government rules, the statement added that NHS test reports are not applicable as qualification for international travel and that most appointments for testing with the NHS are reserved for individuals who have developed coronavirus symptoms, which may mean healthy people are at risk of cross infection.

英国卫生部门检测报告不再用作登机证明

据中国驻英国大使馆网站11月14日消息,近期有多名自英国出发赴华的旅客,在抵达中国后确诊为新冠肺炎患者。有关旅客大多持有英国卫生部门(NHS)出具的检测报告。按照英国政府规定,NHS检测不适用于国际旅行目的。一般情况下,只有出现新冠肺炎症状人员才能预约进行NHS检测,检测场所出现新冠肺炎感染者的可能性较大,健康人员前往检测将面临接触感染者的可能。如因此感染,不仅损害个人健康,产生经济负担,更会给同机乘客的健康造成严重威胁。
