  1. The govt. Should instruct then not to return to the state at this moment and they should stay wherever there are should put them under isolation.

  2. Government of Meghalaya should issue them a notification not to return because it creates a big threat for the common people in the state as well as the School going children. If they come back to Meghalaya the chance of spreading Will become high so it will difficult to maintain.

  3. These 7 people must be quarantine d and before entering meghalaya they should be screened thoroughly for symptoms and covid19.

  4. I agree with you. Even after they (hopefully) clear after quarantine petiod, they must be put under quarantine for 14 days the moment they reach the state.

  5. At this time when lockdown has been enforced I strongly recommend that these people should not be allowed into the state where there is zero Cvid infection in the state.
    These people will be the potential carriers and thereby chances of infection to the others.
    I strongly feel that such people should all the more should not be allowed as the medical facilities in the state as compared to other states is comparatively weaker.
    For the betterment of the people of the state these people should be allowed only when the infection and chances of spreading is lesser.
    I wish them a speedy recovery.

  6. The Government of Meghalaya should ensure that these 7 people should be in self quarantine and should not be permitted to return to Meghalaya until and unless they have been declared safe and covid-19 free. But since, they may be asymptomatic and thereby carriers, it would be in the interest of the State as a whole for them to remain where they are until the situation has been brought under control.
    We pray for them and for everyone. God bless.

    1. I agree with you. Even after they (hopefully) clear after quarantine petiod, they must be put under quarantine for 14 days the moment they reach the state.

  7. Beginning of Biological warfare. Government must act immediately & smartly in napping the infected culprits

    1. Whatever the situation is we should desist from blaming and stigmatizing the covid positive patients as culprits.Atleast during this uncertain time we should be humane and pray to the almighty for the safety and good health of entire human race.It is not the fault of anyone infected by the virus so stop behaving like racist and instead of fighting among us fight the virus to save mankind. I am just praying that god will take mercy upon us for all the evil we have done on this world and lead us to a cure.Let us all pray and pray hard for the entire world.
