Till Monday evening, the district administration was unclear about the number of male and female passengers and details of native districts of the passengers reaching on Tuesday. They expect to get the details once all the passengers board the aircraft at Dubai airport.

The passengers on arrival would be segregated into two groups, A and B. People suffering from cough, fever and cold would be listed under group A and will be put through 14 days’ quarantine at district Wenlock Hospital. Those not displaying any symptoms of the disease would be quarantined in the hotels or hostels fixed by the district administration.

Rooms booked in hotels and hostels fall under different room rent ranging from Rs 1,000 to Rs 4,500 per day. Some say that under the current condition, paying high room rent is not practicable for the passengers.

    Due to lack of availability of single room for each person please do not put two or more people in same room.
    State has converted large halls in to quarantine center, But putting many people under quarantine in single large hall is dangerous.

    If any one of them affected by coronavirus will results in spreading virus to other member.

    Kind request with all fellow Mangaloreans:
    Do not treat people who return from far countries or places like untouchables. Instead let us pray for them so that they reach safely and get quarantined well and join their families.

    Once they are back to their homes, do not avoid seeing them or talking to them. Maintain safe social distancing and continue your good relations with them. You will not be infected if you follow the safe guidelines.

    Also people who return to their homes who arrived from far countries and places, it is also your responsibility to maintain discipline and cleanliness around you. Please take good care of yourself, your loved ones and your neighbors.

    God Bless you all, Stay Home, Stay Safe.

    When u wanted gifts from NRI you have asked them to send it after 2 years right. Whatever marriage halls, convention centres, schools , colleges etc if have been built it is because of the major contribution of the NRI. Not all NRI made money by magic.
    The fight should be against corona and not against NRI

    This will be a tough time for the district administration even after making all the arrangements. So far so good. The Dubai passengers should fully cooperate and agree with whatever the DA is doing. COVID-19 is a deadly disease and very precaution must be taken by not only the passengers but also others who will be involved in this mission.

    NOT FAKE...Kindly check Kerala news or Gov representatives and confirm Pls..Everything is free for the stranded NRI who is coming back to Kerala.and if anyone needs more facility than this means if anyone need VIP category rooms for Quarantine,they are providing you with the extra charges,unless everything is free in Kerala..
    But here our government is looting the money of Kannadigas coming back to Karnataka.No any help is provided by the Government. They are charging for whatever facility they are providing.Now mostly people who are coming are the ones who lost their job.How dey will bear this huge amount again??..Goverment has money to do Operational Kamala and buy the MLA for Crores of Rupees but cannot do any help the citizens during this bad time.

    Room rent of Rs.63,000 (Rs.4,500 /day) for 14 days may not be affordable for most, there may be rush for Rs.14,000 for 14 days room rent.

    Let's see which all hotels have been onboarded as Quarantine centers.

    What is this?. You don't want to pay for tickets. You don't want to pay for quarantine facility. You don't want to pay for food, You don't want to pay tax. This is not acceptable. You have not done any favor on us.

    Expatriates particularly from GCC are not so lucky to get paid while sitting at home during lock down doing nothing and still get paid. Most of them have neither been paid for many months or have lost their jobs. Since last 10 years most of the expatriates are only surviving in gulf without any savings. Whatever they earn they send it to their home country to their families which is spent there either for daily expenditure or for some construction activity, functions, donations etc..from which many people run their businesses and earn their daily bread in India.

    Please consider to make liquor available during quarantine. It will be very boring and difficult to be alone for 14 days. Otherwise, district administration should provide counselling sessions for each with a psychologist after the quarantine.

    Shankar Mangalore, Your comments make no sense at all. Just think of the priority which is required for the Dubai returned passengers. Mainly, the quarantine accommodation and the food should be a main concern.

    Unlike the NRIs in USA, we in India and Dubai still live in a social environment. We talk to neighbors, party with friends and family. We never restrict ourselves inside our house. So you may not suffer in 14 days isolation, but we do. It will be unbearable even with regular food supply.
    So I feel alcohol can help in quarantine.
    Does it make sense now?
