Hyderabad, March 19 (NSS): TPCC spokesperson Syed Nizamuddin has strongly condemned the authorities for not providing medical and other facilities to passengers, who have been kept at a Quarantine Centre in NIRD, on the premises of Prof. Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University, Rajender Nagar.
Following the information that the passengers of three international flights from Dubai and other places have been kept in observation at the Quarantine Centre in NIRD, the TPCC leader on Thursday visited the Quarantine Centre and interacted with the relatives of those quarantined.
Mohammed Ghousuddin, one of the passengers, who arrived from London on Wednesday, told Nizamuddin that there were no doctors or para-medical team available in the isolation ward. Those kept in the isolation center were provided breakfast at about 3 pm and the rooms where they have been kept neither sanitized nor cleaned properly. They were not even provided drinking water. In the name of observation, they have been confined to a building with literally no facilities, he added.
The TPCC Spokesperson said the officials were standing outside the center and expressing helplessness. He said the officials and doctors were not ready to visit the place and the higher authorities were not giving permission to shift them to Gandhi Hospital. He demanded that the State Government provide required medical treatment and other facilities to all those in isolation/observation. He said negligence in handling the suspects of Corona virus would prove costly for the entire society. Therefore, he said, the authorities should act in a responsible manner in handling the situation.
