About the incident at Quarantine Center

8 People who were in the Quarantine centre were discharged after their Quarantine period of 7 days got over, seeing them going home he also requested the officials to let him go to his house.

Over the past few months, many people have tried to escape from various quarantine centres as staying at that environment where most of the people are suspected to be Covid-19 positive is very difficult hence, trying to escape from it is a human instinct.

Increasing Covid-19 Cases in Chhattisgarh

With an increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in Chhattisgarh, people who are affected by this disease are now kept at different quarantine centres for a week in their city. Due to that, more and more people are shifted to these centres, and many of them didn’t want to be there for long as its isolated from the outside world.

Keeping in mind of the increasing cases Chhattisgarh government has announced lockdown for seven days, few centres like medicine shops, and clinics, are allowed to open.

But due to the threat of increasing spread government is taking necessary measures to ensure the health and safety of all each individual, so the patients were not allowed to leave the quarantine centres until their report comes out to be negative. And after the recent incident where the man commits suicide officials are following more strictness around the centres and locality.
