KEA disappointed over ill-equipped quarantine centres in Kashmir

Srinagar: Kashmir Economic Alliance(KEA) has expressed dismay over the facilities at various quarantine centres across Kashmir.
In a statement issued here, Vice Chairman Mohd Iqbal Trumboo said they feel disappointed with the administration regarding the quarantine facilities created to prevent spread of COVID-19.
“Such facilities need to have basic standards of hygiene and comfort to ensure a long and comfortable stay in isolation. Restriction on movement and nervousness in the likelihood of a positive result can lead to psychological trauma. To put such persons in a miserable environment is not only inhuman but hazardous to the quarantined persons,” he said.
He said they have been in touch with the many asymptomatic persons throughout Valley and have learnt that people are bundled in big, unhealthy numbers in a single room with a single dirty and unhygienic bathroom.
