To curb coronavirus spread, travellers landing in India, both Indians and non-Indians, have to compulsory undergo 14-day self-quarantine at public quarantine centers erected across the countries. However, seems like some quarantine centers are just not what one would feel safe at.
When organizations like WHO are asking people to maintain hygiene, public quarantine facilities seem to be neglecting the same. The proofs are these videos and pictures if quarantine facilities in Delhi being shared by people online.
In one video, a Spain-return 21-year-old student shares the unhygienic facilities being offered at a government facility in Delhi’s Dwarka police training school. In the video, she describes how “there are only three washrooms and five large bedrooms for more than 40 people kept in the facility,”
Have a look:
Besides students, many more people, who have been quarantined across India, also shared pictures snd videos of the filthy state of quarantine facilities.
In times when proper hygiene is one of the many ways to ensure one doesn’t get infected, such pictures and videos will only demotivate other people in the country. Thus, the government must look into the matter on a priority basis.
