The Health Department has roped in counsellors for migrant labourers quarantined at temporary shelter homes, said an official.

Dr Saroj Agarwal, Deputy Civil Surgeon, said: “We have all arrangements in place for migrant labourers quarantined in temporary shelter homes. Even TVs have been installed so that they can spend quality time. Apart from this, we have asked our trained counsellors to counsel them as they have psychological trauma.” The Supreme Court had told the Central Government to send trained counsellors to every shelter home.

Seven more samples were collected on Friday and sent to the PGI for Covid-19 testing, taking the total number of tests to 93 so far. According to officials, results of 29 samples are awaited. As many as 294 people are under home quarantine. A total of 122 persons have completed their quarantine period. While there are around 50 people at a quarantine facility in Mouli, 79 people have been quarantined at Nada Sahib. — TNS
