How many people have tested negative for Covid 19 when arriving from an Amber or red country.
Of those people, how many tested positive on the second test.
Since 14 August 2020 to 21 September there have been approximately 3800 passengers with declaration forms from Amber / Red countries. It is noted that records are reliant on passengers fully declaring their travel history and therefore numbers cannot be exact.
In that period, there were a total of five people from arrivals screening that have tested negative on a day 0 test and then positive on a day five test.
