Around 30 homeless people ‘street’ quarantined in Chennai without toilets and masks
| Tuesday | 31st March, 2020
Having ruled out the option to shift them, Corporation staff have asked for both ends of the street to be barricaded, thus placing them under ‘street’ quarantine.
Corporation officials told The New Indian Express that they would be provided with food for their quarantine period even if they run out of stock.
Although police and other corporation staff have been asking people there to maintain distance between them, the families said it was not practically possible.
When asked, Corporation officials said that arrangements will be made for temporary toilets to be made accessible to them.
Meanwhile, corporation officials said that they were in the process of ‘sectoring’ the area after which a detailed survey of 10,000-12,000 people will be done in the neighbourhood.
