Imphal: Chaos and anxiety created mayhem at one of the community quarantine centres in Wangkhei assembly constituency on Wednesday.
The incident occurred at Thamchet High School, Nongmeibung after two positive Covid-19 cases emerged from 21 inmates.
The local volunteers manning the quarantine centre told Pothashang that the test results of the 21 inmates were confirmed negative on Tuesday afternoon. However later in the evening, it was informed that the test results of two inmates among them turned out to be positive which created chaos at the centre, they added.
They also said that both the positive inmates were shifted to Covid Care Facility at JNIMS, Imphal 16 hours after the confirmation of their results on Wednesday afternoon. The remaining inmates are now worried as there is a higher risk of spreading Covid-19 due to unavailability of more than one bathroom and toilet in the affected quarantine centre.
The local clubs, parents and guardians of the negative inmates were furious over the incompetence in the part of authority.
