it was already known that it had an incubation of 2 weeks. so this step would have reduced the spread a lot.

You would have had to quarantine literally lakhs of passengers → improbable, not feasible, nearly impossible are the words that come to my mind. Not to mention you’d have to put all high level foreign, especially Chinese, dignitaries in isolation as well.

Forget about quarantine from Jan…They’re not even able to do it now (except worthless tagging/home quarantine) with all travel restrictions/suspended flights to/from affected regions in place and panic/fear mongering among people

This virus spread via aerosol method and people who travel via air or those who work in closed spaces (air conditioning) are more prone to get it.

Our government isn’t doing anything and we have idiots everywhere. In my hometown, Somebody came back from Dubai just 2 days ago and now they are doing some religious gathering at their home.

Terrible! Also the so called IT offices of our nation who are still enforcing employees to come down to office. What about them?

I see so many people being enforced to come to office even when there is a feasibility of working from home. These are centrally air conditioned offices.

Most so called “highly educated” people refused to undergo home quarantine. The only way is to pass a law to immediately arrest them and sent them to prison for 3 months. Only when threatened with prison they will accept quarantine.

Almost 1 lakh people travel everyday in and out India only via airways, not a feasible task to quarantine everyone for 2 weeks. Even highly developed countries could not take that approach.

Its not about everyone who uses/used international travel (not possible)….its only about those who had come/coming from affected regions
Just look at the source of confirmed cases in India, the source of infection had always been predictive : China, Italy, Spain, germany, UK, Dubai Airport …. travellers from these locatons (banned/suspended now?) should be subjected to mandatory quarantine (of 2 weeks) if the govt is not capable of testing everyone (even w/ zero symptoms)
Also they need to track down all those travellers from feb 2nd/3rd week…subject them to mandatory quarantine/isolation facility until the reports are our)
If you check one of the recent confirmed case from delhi (got IDed just this week?)..the suspect arrived in delhi (From US: via Dubai?) on Feb 20 (w/ zero symptoms)..travelled via train, been to a wedding attended by 1000+ people

Isolation and quarantine are actually different things. They have been used as synonyms but are different.
Now, to put someone in quarantine, from what I know is not a random easy task which India can afford in infinite numbers.
India still has just 52 testing labs and not enough quarantine labs too.

Resources are not unlimited so India too has to take measures accordingly.

Might have been screened but No stamps.

A couple returned back from Dubai after their honeymoon and they are meeting and greeting guests at their home instead of staying in isolation. Their family members are doing some paath puja.

And these idiots went to their honeymoon to Dubai within last 10-15 days.

I try to explain my friends through this example : If someone smokes a cigarette in centrally air conditioned room, then smoke will reach everyone. It is something similar with this virus and it spreads in 4.5m diameter of infected person. While surface transmission and airborne transmission are there, this virus is deadly because it spreads via aerosol method (like smoke).

Every one is rushing to buy sanitizers disregarding the fact that this virus attacks lungs.. I think WHO also contributed to this mis-conception by focusing too much on hand washing.
