The Delhi Government announced mandatory institutional quarantine for people traveling from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh (A.P.) 

The decision was taken on the 6th of May, due to the rising number of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases. Recently, the two Telugu states, A.P. and Telangana reported a new more viral variant of the COVID-19 virus. The new mutant, mostly found in Telangana and A.P., has a shorter incubation and has a higher rate of transmission.

The Delhi Disaster Management Authority released an order regarding the same, which read, “All persons arriving from the state of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana in NCT of Delhi by airlines, trains, buses, cars, trucks or any other mode of transportation shall have to undergo mandatory government institutional quarantine or paid quarantine for 14 days at facilities established by the concerned district magistrate.”

However, a person with a negative RT-PCR report not older than 72 hours prior to the journey, or one who received COVID-19 vaccination (both doses) would be asked to stay home quarantined for 7 days.

In case of non compliance or violation of the announced law, the Delhi Government would take strict action under Section 51 to 60 of the Disaster Management Act.

Resident commissioners of concerned state bhawans will be responsible for ensuring the compliance of instructions for quarantine in case of those reaching there. Hotel owners and guest house owners would also be responsible if people from A.P., and Telangana stay at their hotels.

The decision came at a time when the Delhi Health Infrastructure is struggling to meet the demands of beds, oxygen and other medical requirements for COVID-19 patients. Delhi also has a massive number of Coronavirus cases.

According to the Union Health Ministry’s COVID-19 data, Delhi has 91,859 active cases and 18,063 deaths till date.
