India on Wednesday extended the ban on flights to and from the United Kingdom until January 7 next year. The Centre earlier suspended India-UK flights until December 31 but has now extended it by one week. The decision comes amid the alarm over the new, highly contagious strain of coronavirus discovered in the UK and found among people who returned from there.
