RECENT visitors to India are being barred from flights between Hong Kong and China after mainland authorities said they would be refused entry because of India's plague outbreak. Airlines are refusing to take anyone who has travelled from or through India in the past six days.

Mainland Chinese who had travelled in the plague-stricken country since September 30 would be quarantined for six days on arrival in China, said a notice issued by the Kai Tak operators' committee to all airlines.
