Nagpur: Although the number of daily coronavirus patients is very less. And no death has been recorded in the last one and a half months. The NMC does not yet have any plans to stop the mandatory institutional quarantine of corona positive patients.
On 25th August, Nagpur Municipal Corporation resumed this measure and admitted eligible asymptomatic coronavirus patients in MLA hostel. Where this one (CCC) covid care center is running it.
Some time ago the State Public Works Department (PWD) has written a letter to the Collector of the district. Demanding the possession of the MLA hostel in view of the upcoming winter session of the legislature.
Additional Municipal Commissioner named Ram Joshi has said that the decision to continue the covid care center. In the MLA Hostel is yet to be taken. All patients of coronavirus will be quarantined. And Ram Joshi also said that, “We will also request the collector that the covid care center in the MLA hostel should not be closed too soon.”
MLA Hostel covid care center is currently the only institutional quarantine center in the city. At present, there are about 12 patients admitted there and this figure has remained the same for the past one month.
If Nagpur Municipal Corporation has to vacate it, Then the civic body will have to start another new center at this facility at some other place. Joshi has said so that we have hostels of VNIT Hostel, Vanmati and Law College. But all these places do not have facilities like MLA Hostel.
Quarantine in MLA Hostel
AMC has also said that the municipal body will continue to keep every new covid patient. In institutional quarantine as long as possible. He has also said that it has helped in controlling the spread of Corona more than any other city. Whenever a covid patient opposes being quarantined inside the MLA hostel. We request those patients to be admitted in AIIMS Nagpur or Civil Hospital. We also allow patients to get admitted inside a private hospital.
Ram has also said that once again. The trend of more than one member of the same family testing positive for Covid was well evident in the daily cases. A few days ago, 8 to 10 new corona cases were reported in the city. And 2 or 3 of these were patients from the same family. In these corona virus cases. When the patients were shifted inside the Kovid Care Center. The neighbors of the patients also got relief.
And as per the earlier norms, asymptomatic people were not allowed to be admitted inside any hospital but the Nagpur Municipal Corporation revised these norms.
