Karnataka, India: People Quarantining At Home Must Send Hourly Selfies From Their Places

Ankita Chetana |Apr 02, 2020

Karnataka Medical Education Minister Dr. K Sudhakar said that people who don't send their selfies hourly will be taken to mass quarantine centers.

To manage the quarantine of people in the state, the revenue department of the Karnataka government has developed a mobile app called Quarantine Watch. Based on this, the home quarantined people who are suspected and infected with coronavirus have to take hourly selfies of quarantine so that the administration can track them.

Especially, if they don't follow this rule, they are warned to be taken to mass quarantine centers. According to a statement by Dr. K Sudhakar, the Minister of Karnataka Medical Education, every person who is isolating at home have to register at the app and send hourly selfies of quarantine. He said:

"All persons under order of Home Quarantine shall send their selfie to government everyone hour from home. If the home quarantine person fails to send selfie every one hour (except sleeping time from 10 pm to 7 am) then government team will reach such defaulters and they are liable to be shifted to the government created mass quarantine."

The app Quarantine Watch has a feature of reading GSP of the user's selfie so that the government is sure to know where that person is. Not only those failing to send a selfie but people who send untrue photos misleading the monitoring team will also be led to the mass centers of quarantine.

Apart from asking the people to send their hourly selfies of quarantine, the government in Karnataka also arranges a check team to make visits from house to house. This team will use the app and send a photo of home quarantined people taken by them to the government.

After the rule was declared, the government received many complaints that home quarantined people still get around, ignore the directions, and violate the rule. Do you think that this demand really works? Leave a comment below!
