Distressed passenger faced with rude shock called 'quarantine for money’
A passenger arriving from Andhra Pradesh’s Memboob Nagar to her home in Karnataka is left with no money to eat and is not able to pay for a hotel to remain in quarantine.
The mother of a small child said, she arrived in Bengaluru from Mehboob Nagar and has not eaten for long and fears for her child’s safety during mass quarantine at a government facility.
The mother questioned, "When I have not eaten and have been starving for long, how can I get milk to breastfeed my child?"
The woman along with her relative wants to head to home in Domlur but will be taken to a government quarantine facility as she has no money to pay for a hotel to remain in quarantine.
The woman said she has had no work for the last three months and cannot afford to pay.
