In an official release, the state government said the decision was taken at a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and attended by district officials through video-conferencing.

People undergoing home quarantine for suspected exposure to the novel coronavirus will be stamped on the left hand, the Maharashtra government said.

In an official release, the state government said the decision was taken at a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and attended by district officials through video-conferencing.

As on Monday, there were 37 Covid-19 patients in the state.

As per protocol, people arriving from coronavirus- affected regions are being put under home quarantine as a precautionary measure while their samples are sent for tests.

The statement urged people to send their complaints or requests through e-mails rather than visiting government offices for redressal of grievances.

The district administration has been told to take a call on the requests in these e-mails within seven days, it said.

In another development, Maharashtra minister Aaditya Thackeray announced that universities in the state have decided to postpone exams till March 31.

“After risk assessments, the Higher & Technical Ministry has decided to postpone all university exams, in its jurisdiction, to a date later than 31st March, 2020. All educational institutes must therefore observe a complete temporary closure till further notice. #Corona,” he tweeted.

In another tweet, Aaditya Thackeray, who is also state tourism minister, said, “Thank you Mirage Hotel, Mumbai and ITC hotel, Mumbai for opening up your doors to incoming travels that will be compulsorily isolated for 24 hours on arrival in Mumbai, as requested by BMC, since yesterday. #Corona.”

Seems like a great move for once, let’s hope the infected suspected don’t try to get rid of the stamp in any way in fact make it a tattoo smiling_imp

Suspected* not infected
PS: Won’t do any good, they need to start testing people vigorously like South Korea did!
What’s the point of tagging suspect people without testing (hardly takes a day or two for the report)

There’s nothing mentioned about testing for all suspected cases, but one would hope the suspected ones would all be tested & on high priority.

It is what being suggested by WHO (more seriously now)
If a nation is not able to test the suspected case, then they’re just incompetent!

Any reason to believe we have a vast testing services like them? Last I read they have some 50+ testing centres with utilization of 1-2%. They maybe be saving those kits in case of more serious outbreak in the future. Not that it would matter then because it would be safe to assume most are infected if they show some sort of symptoms.

We will have more testing facilities if we set them, its not like South Korea had it from the moment they recorded their first COVID-19 case. Even if there is no testing center in your vicinity, there is a pickup service currently being arranged from the health ministry from any private/public hospital (w/ Isolation wards facilities)
And it is not easy to get yourself consider as a COVID-19 suspect, so much hassle you got to go through (Every country is following the WHO suspect guidelines in classifying patients) but even after being classified as a suspect what’s the point ?
Also we have the capacity to do 10k tests per day (there are multiple reports that we are not even doing 10% [one source] ..or 50% [other source]
Like WHO is suggesting every nation, all suspected cases need to be tested ASAP else the minor active cases right now will be the cause for major outbreak in the coming weeks

True.
As soon as people see such a person, they will run as if he is a bomb. Worst than AIDS. They are making him an outcast legally.

Stamping is only for when they go out of home so that people and govt agencies can recognise them and treat them as outcast and disgrace publicly.

Coronavirus: People consume cow urine in Kolkata

Kolkata, Mar 16 (PTI) A cow urine consumption programme was organised in north Kolkata on Monday out of the belief that it will protect people from the coronavirus or cure them in case they have already been infected.

Why did people who were confirmed nCoV positive ran away from their quarantine? It seems no matter what the govt does there will be detractors! In some threads people are advocating for nationwide curfew, saying the govts have not done enough, more tests are needed & now this! Make up your minds people → you want the govt to do something & then not do the thing they’re actually doing or better still you want them do your (suggested) thing rolleyes

Yup, I’ve seen it all at DD a complete trainwreck smile

This is what you call an echo chamber of sorts or something like heads I win, tails you lose laughing

Such short-sighted and naive decision.
People will be outcasted,shunned, discriminated against due to this.
Marking out sick people is morally reprehensible.
Might get lynched too.
If anyone tests positive they should be quarantined in proper space like hospitals.
Not marked like discarded goods.
There are several examples of how to effectively fight the virus like Taiwan and south Korea.
Politicians should take their clues from there rather than coming with these “genius” moves.
We need to expand our testing capabilities rapidly, start randomised tests where covid 19 patients have been detected to find out any clusters, doctors should coordinate and weed out symptoms and recommend testing if they deem fit.
Our testing rates are among the lowest.

Why would they get lynched? You do know people doing the lynching will also get infected right & when was the last time you had lynchings due to a disease? People making things up like possible lynchings need to present facts not conjecture! Whatsapp se zyada to misinformation yaha hai imp

Many people are fleeing from hospitals. If someone is suspected you better stay home. In india Some people are too confident that no disease can touch them. You don’t know our old people they are dangerous.

There are only two cases AFAIK of people violating their quarantine and running.
Rest everyone who tested positive have been compliant with the treatments.
Tourists and NRI all have been successfully completed their quarantine in isolation camps for weeks. Those numbers are in thousands.
You think it would be right or even fair to draft policies based on a tiny percentage of extreme examples ?
There are always idiots everywhere.
Agreed on staying home part for people who suspect they might have symptoms.
But without testing positive, it would have to be voluntarily and self imposed no ?

Not two in our state 4-5 people fled from hospital as per official report. Unofficially the number may be high. Who’ ll report that. Everyone loves his job.
if you are suspected you better stay home.

someone came from Italy-Delhi to bhubneswar and he tested positive in bhubneswar. Not in Delhi airport. During this journey many people must have touched him.

So what mh govt doing is “As per protocol, people arriving from coronavirus-affected regions are being put under home quarantine as a precautionary measure while their samples are sent for tests.” During this period one may think he/she doesn’t have virus and start socializing or goes here and there guess what’ll happen.

Those few people who ran away put hundreds (if not thousands) of people at risk and those hundreds of people will infect thousands later. Whatever government is doing is correct however they still needs to do more.
If you are suspect then better stay at home until your report is clean or quarantine period is over. You dont have to go to malls and store to infect others.

Aren’t people coming from affected countries supposed to be put in full quarantine in special isolated zones as they were doing earlier ?
As people can be asymptomatic carriers and can effect their family members meanwhile their tests being carried out.
Would all family members be self isolating and marked ?
Stamping people and sending them for home quarantine seems like an easier way out for the gormint rather than making isolation wards and maintaining quarantine facilities, even if we discard the mortality argument of stamping patients and potential repercussions for them and their families this doesn’t seem to be a good strategy from the point of fighting the virus.
And people who are violating the quarantine are idiots of astronomic proportions putting civilians life and their own family members life at risk. Like that girl who flew from Bangalore. Not only she didn’t give two f**ks about herself and the people she potentially infected in the train and her parents too.

Although I firmly believe that suspects should be quarantined by the govt (until the reports arrive in 24-48hrs)..do u think this stamping on left hand will work? Identifying the suspects? (Even within 14 days)
As part of precautionary measure, many use full sleeves + hand gloves whenever they go out..so what’s the point of even stamping apart from wasting the resources n time risking lives of other people?
Seriously..this is such a dumb move by any government
