Aircrew from international flights will be exempt from the harshest quarantining measures, and will instead be allowed to self-isolate in their place of residence, or a hotel if outside their city of origin.

The decision has attracted criticism following the arrival of a cargo plane from Wuhan in China, the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak.
