Migrants from Garhwal will stay at Haridwar, Kotdwar, Munikireti and Kumaon expatriates at Haldwani and Rudrapur

It was arranged for people coming from outside to Uttarakhand that all the migrants would be quarantined in Haridwar itself, but the district administration was told that the maximum number of people coming in, let alone quarantining them in Haridwar is impossible.

It was considered in the rule till late at night Then orders were made to make arrangements in different districts. DM C Ravi Shankar said that Haldwani and Rudrapur have been made centers for Haridwar, Kotdwar, Munikireti, and Kumaon for Garhwal.

Four districts will be quarantined in Haridwar, there will be pool investigation
Following the High Court order, the district administration has also started a campaign to institutionalize the migrants and sample them all. In Haridwar, migrants from four districts will be quarantined and examined. CMO Dr. Saroj Naithani said that samples of 230 people from outside were taken on Thursday.

These samples will be examined through the pool. 20 samples will be included in a pool. If the report of a group is positive, then all its 20 samples will be examined separately.

DM C Ravi Shankar said that apart from Haridwar, migrants from Rudraprayag, Uttarkashi, and Chamoli have been quarantined in Haridwar to arrange for their medical examination. To quarantine, 50 places have been arranged in the entire district including Haridwar, Jwalapur, Piran Kaliyar.

He said that 479 people boarding a train carrying 1607 migrants from Mumbai were quarantined in Piran Kaliyar under this arrangement late Wednesday night. DM said that as the number of migrants keeps increasing, they will be quarantined at the designated places.

Until the reports of samples come, these people will stay in these centers. If reported ‘positive’, they will be isolated and treated. Those who report negative will be sent home. All arrangements have been made at the Quarantine Centers.
