Permission has been denied for home quarantine in newly corona-affected areas in Coimbatore. In the Coimbatore district, a total of 60 percent of the corona patients were under home isolation.
At present, it has been reduced to 30%. In this situation, it has been revealed that the number of new cases of COVID 19 has recently spiked in areas including Sulur, Thondamuthar, PN Palayam, Madukkarai and Karamadai. As a result, corona patients have been denied permission to isolate themselves under home quarantine in these areas.
According to reports, Senthilkumar, deputy director of the district health department has said that there is a risk of transmission of the disease from one person to another if the intensity of the infection furthers. “In view of this, permission has been denied for home isolation in certain areas. Therefore, steps have been taken to admit those who are in home quarantine in specialized treatment centres.
Besides, home isolation is allowed only if there are facilities including a separate room, toilet and ventilated space. In the future, the rules for home isolation will be tightened, ” he added.
