Indians rescued and kept under well-managed quarantine
The Rupandehi District Administration has rescued more than 150 Indian workers working in different sectors of Nepal. It has also made arrangements for keeping them in quarantine here in view of the COVID-19 risk.
They were rescued from the Nepal-India border region which is locked down at the moment. They are being kept at the quarantine facility at the Nima-Pratima Technical School in Bhairahawa. Among them, 14 are females and the rest are male.
Their health was examined before keeping them in quarantine. Arrangements have also been made for conducting regular health checkups in the quarantine itself.
Chief District Officer of Rupandehi, Mahadev Panta said, "They have been kept in a well-managed quarantine facility in the three-storied college building." He said, "Nepal Army has been assigned for the security of the Indian workers. Likewise, Siddharthanagar Municipality is managing food for the labourers kept in quarantine."
