Village Quarantine Center
Migrants coming from other regions of the country will be kept in the Village Quarantine Center. They will be kept here and monitored. Officials say the risk of infection is slightly lower in those coming from less affected districts. For this reason they will be kept here.
The most dangerous are coming from Delhi, Mumbai and Gujarat. Preparation is being done to divide quarantine by category. This will be quite a relief, as monitoring will be done easily. Dr. Raj Kishore Chaudhary, Civil Surgeon
