As the need for having isolation or Quarantine centers in the city came, Nagpur University was asked to offer their university admin building for the same for the patients suffering from novel coronavirus pandemic. However, in response to this, Nagpur University has offered the University hostel instead of the admin building as they are better equipped for the stay which would be needed for the patients while checking their possibility of having the virus.
The local authority at Nagpur including the NMC and others are leaving no stone unturned to prepare for the fight against the deadly virus. And thus they now need the quarantine center. The state government was relying on the administrative building of the Nagpur University. However, since the admin building lacked the facilities for stay and it would need loads of other arrangements, hence the authority gave a second thought. To which the NU authorities have offered the university hostel for the same.
Since hostels have proper arrangement of toilets and other similar spaces that can be of great use for the patients getting admitted for the virus. As per reports, the Nagpur University hostel has around 1190 students currently residing. Since the hostels are vacant at the moment, hence it can be used for the isolation center. These have 500 rooms with proper beds to use and toilets. Thus the VC has suggested the same. However, the civic body is yet to decide upon the same to use it for a quarantine center. They are also considering the MLA or Aamdar nivas and other government buildings in Nagpur
