Covid-19: Indiscipline of NRI man causes anxiety in Kerala

Agency News

Palakkad, March 26: The irresponsible behaviour on a Dubai-based NRI in Karakurissi near here has become a matter of serious concern for the district authorities after the man was tested positive for Coronavirus recently.

The man from Dubai who reached Karipur airport on March 13 had violated home quarantine and had visited several places prior to testing positive and being put up in isolation on March 21.

Accordingly, all the seven members in the family have also been put on home quarantine. "It is not him being testing positive which bothers us but his vast and wide travel all across. We are committed to contain further spreading. The route map of his travel will be released soon", the district collector D Balamurali has said.

One of his sons is a conductor in KSRTC in Mannarkkad depot and had been on duty in a bus up to Thiruvananthapuram. This is yet another headache for the administration.

A similar situation had caused serious concern when a gulf-returnee there had come in contact with many by violating home quarantine norms. The test results of his contacts are expected today.

Now the district authorities of Palakkad will be on a tough task in getting samples of the NRIs contacts tested and moving further. (UNI)
