2 SCHOOLS MADE QUARANTINE CENTRES
CHANDIGARH : In order to break the chain of infection in Bapu Dham Colony, the UT administration on Friday turned two school buildings here into a special quarantine facility. UT administrator VP Singh Badnore said during the Friday review meeting that those colony residents whose houses were small and congested should be allowed to utilise this facility free of cost. While Badnore appreciated PGIMER for their field visit to the colony, doctors privy to the matter said the overall analysis of their field visit will take some time. Badnore also asked the municipal corporation commissioner to ensure that essential items were available in all containment zones. Meanwhile, MC chief KK Yadav said the temporary shifting of the Sector 26 mandi to ISBT, Sector 17, had been completed. Necessary sanitisation and social distancing were being maintained in the area, he said.
Arun Kumar Gupta, principal secretary (health), said a post-discharge centre had been set up at Sood Dharamshala for patients with mild symptoms. Adviser Manoj Parida said several reliefs were being granted by the Centre for the benefit of the poor.
