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.
