Maharashtra to ‘tag’ people in home-quarantine


Mumbai: In an unprecedented move, the Maharashtra government on Monday decided to ‘tag’ all those people who have been sent to 100 percent “home quarantine” as positive cases reached 38, here on Monday.

Accordingly, the left hand of all persons shunted to 100 percent home-quarantine will be “stamped” to identify them easily when they mingle with the general public.

The decision, taken at a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, has been described as a precautionary measure after 38 cases of COVID-19 have been detected in the state — highest in India — and after seven suspected patients had fled from treatment centers in the past couple of days, probably coming in contact with others.
