The residents of Uttara Sector-18 on Friday formed a human chain demanding that no quarantine centre be set up in their residential area.
Holding placards that read ‘No isolation camp in residential area’ and ‘We express compassion but please don’t put Sector-18 under threat’, they formed the human chain at noon.
A child was also seen holding a placard which reads: ‘Honorable PM, save us from corona.’
Two quarantine centres – one at the Haji Camp in Ashkona and other at Diabari of Uttara – were set up under the supervision of Bangladesh Army to keep the overseas returnees there.
On completion of the screening and immigration procedure at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, the selected returnees will be handed over to army.
Later, army men will take them to the quarantine centres and take care of them.
