In a kind example of doing whatever with whatever you have, a group of villagers in Manipur has set up a small quarantine centre for returnees. Each accommodation in the quarantine centre has been made by bamboos and has all the facilities needed to spend one’s time comfortably.
More than that, the quarantine center has got mountains in the vicinity so the returnees spend time amidst the calmness of nature. All of this has been done by a group of villagers so that the people returning to the state do not lack basic facilities when quarantining.
Reportedly, they did not take any financial help from the government and set up everything on their own. Their efforts have been appreciated by Chief Minister N. Biren Singh and Union DoNER (Development of North Eastern Region) Minister Jitendra Singh.
Further, the Minsiter highlighted the facilities inside the hut which include a separate toilet, electricity, bed, gas station and a charging socket.
Such an initiative is necessary as 1,000s of migrants workers are returning to the state and they need to be quarantined for a period of 14 days. Also, using bamboo is a great choice as they are environment-friendly and available in abundance in the state popular for making goods using the same.

No need to go out… Time to utilize the natural resources.
Would you like to be quarantined here?
