Sunday’s 58 cases of Coronavirus infection totalled 503 cases in Delhi, including 320 cases related to Tablighi Jamaat. More than 5,000 men, believed to be Covid-19 patients, are in hospitals. In the middle of all this, a new problem has arisen: 20,000 quarantined homes in the National Capital. The number of people quarantined at home so far is 45,616, including 22,716 of international travel experience and 22,850 who came into contact of them. For these, 25,605 completed their 14-day isolation. The remaining 20,011 have finished their 14-day quarantine time. “Nearly 20,000 houses have been quarantined. In addition, 3,312 people are under quarantine at 19 government hospitals in Delhi, “said the government official.
Last week, police were ordered to monitor all those put under quarantine in the city. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that his government had handed over 25.000 phone numbers, in two sets, to the cops for this reason. He said the move was motivated by countries such as Singapore, where technology was used to impose quarantines. The police have said they are being kept on a close watch. “We use both physical and electronic surveillance. Beat officers pay daily visits to these houses and also speak to neighbors. Local channels are also used to keep an eye on them. CCTV video analysis is also being conducted along with cell network tracking,” a senior police officer said.
Reports said police initially registered 33 FIRs across Delhi, most of them in Dwarka (21) and South Delhi (8), against people who jumped home quarantine, an act which has the potential to put others at risk as well.
