PASIGHAT: The Mebo COVID-19 Quarantine Centre here in East Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh which is divided into two separate centres, one for male at the Government Higher Secondary School and one for female in the Don Bosco School, are sheltering returnees from various parts of the country based on their zone of return like Red, Orange and Green. The quarantine centres of Mebo were being trolled in social media regarding allegation of negligence on the part of administration of Mebo for allowing one Krishna Shah, a returnee from Red Zone area of Patna to enter his home at Mebo Romdum before entering the quarantine centre.

The food quality was also questioned by the inmates of the quarantine centre for negligence on the part of food supply as no curry was provided to the inmates.

While one student from Ayeng village who have returned from Delhi had alleged of negligence in providing good food, another from Sigar village who have been to neighbouring Jonai, Assam also alleged of low quality food and half cooked oil, etc.

However, when contacted, Quarantine Centre Don Bosco School Facility in-charge Omi Tayeng said that the management is taking all precautionary measures in ensuring proper care of the students and others returnee from COVID-19 infected States and cities from around the country.

While Obang Tayeng, Facility in-Charge of Male Quarantine Centre at GHSS Mebo clarified that there were no lapses on the part of the quarantine centres.

However, Obang Tayeng suggested for arrangement of toilets and bathrooms, as more students or returnees are expected and all those having returned from Red Zone areas need to be provided with separate toilet/bathrooms.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Mebo Hage Lailang has denied all the allegation levelled upon the Mebo Quarantine Centres.
