Convenience will be provided, but now the hotel administration is threatening us that if we do not pay immediately, we will have to leave the hotel at that time. '
Says Shamoon Abbasi, "There are many people who do not know how to pay such a large amount of money because we have all come to this place with great pay and at this time they feel that they have money to eat and live." Everyone will be involved. '
He added that passengers were told at the airport that they would have to stay in the hotel for one night after which Corona would be tested in the morning while the results would come after 6 hours and if the results were negative then they would go home.
