In India Blooms, Mr. Chocko Valliappa, the Managing Trustee of Valliappa Foundation, writes on difficulties of people turned covid-19 positive while traveling.
In the article, titled, "There is need to be empathetic, compassionate and have a uniform policy while enforcing Covid-19 protocols," Mr. Chocko Valliappa, the Managing Trustee of Valliappa Foundation, shares his concerns on the difficulties of people turned covid-19 positive while traveling and they might spread the virus when they do not wish to stay in the hospitals, which is the only option available now.
He writes, there is a need for the government body to create isolation/quarantine facilities with three price bands, accessible for all people at various economic levels. Today people are caught in between travel and can’t go back to their place either. In these cases, there are possibilities people might hide their reports and can risk spreading the infection and travel back home.
Also, there is a need for uniform protocols in all the airports. Each airport asks for different forms of reports/certificates, which is not easy for the elderly with less technology exposure. The government should take initiative to make it comfortable for travellers.
