Homeless, but ‘home quarantined’ in Chennai's Broadway
| Wednesday | 1st April, 2020
It was a hard-hitting scenario in Broadway, where the Chennai Corporation staff on Tuesday prescribed ‘home quarantine’ for a group of homeless families.
After a 50-year-old woman tested positive in Chennai on Monday, it was found that there was a group of around 30 homeless individuals staying in the same street as hers in Broadway (the name of the street is not published to protect the woman’s privacy).
Having ruled out the idea of shifting them, Corporation staff have asked for both ends of the street to be closed with barricades, thus placing them under ‘street quarantine’.
Since Tuesday was their first day of ‘quarantine’, the families said they had access to food.
Corporation officials told Express that they would be provided with food for their quarantine period even if they run out of stock.
