The state government has said that the returnees of Tablighi Jamaat in West Bengal have been kept in quarantine. This time the inspection team of the central government is going to observe the quarantine. They will visit Hodge House and Rajarhat in Newtown.
The government was shaken after the Nizamuddin incident in Delhi. The police worked day and night to find all the people who had returned to their state from that gathering. The state government has kept the people of the state who have returned from the Tablighi Jamaat in the Hajj House in Newtown and in the quarantine prepared in Rajarhat. But the opposition complained that not all members of the Tablighi Jamaat had been identified. Some of them are still wandering outside. Even if they are kept in quarantine, they are not being tested properly. As a result, corona virus infection is not detected.
The Centre's team informed the state chief secretary on Wednesday to visit the people of the Tablighi Jamaat. Accordingly, they left for Rajarhat on Thursday. The visiting team of the center will visit NRS, Beleghata ID, Calcutta Medical College for observation. They will also visit several areas in North 24 Parganas and East Midnapore, Corona Hospital and Quarantine Center and several markets and slums in Kolkata and Howrah.
More than 200 Tablighi Jamaat returnees have been quarantined in the state. Of which about 100 are foreigners. There are also citizens of Indonesia and Myanmar. The Chief Secretary of the state has given details of where the Tablighi Jamaat returnees have been kept and how they are being examined. So far, however, only three of them have been infected, one of whom is a Haldia port worker.
