Sinhgad Institutes provides Hostels for use as quarantine facilities in fight against coronavirus.
Promptly responding to the national emergency to control the corona virus outbreak Sinhgad Institutes, Pune allocated 4 hostels from their Vadgaon Campus and 2 hostels from Kondhwa Campus at Pune. There is also a dedicated parking lot to serve this purpose. The hostels were cleaned up in compliance with the stringent requirements, before being repurposed into government quarantine facilities for suspected cases of coronavirus. The need of the hour is to overcome the grave challenge by containing and then eliminating the coronavirus for which the medical professionals, scientists and the entire government machinery are totally focused on. The best solution is social distancing and to quarantine the people who could be suspected to have the disease.
To do this, the government requires as much quarantine facilities as possible across the country. Contributing his mite to this great cause and lauding the efforts of the doctors, nurses, all health care workers, sanitation workers, media personnel, journalists at the forefront updating on the situation from time to time to ensure availability of credible news, Prof. M.N. Navale, the Founder President of Sinhgad Technical Education Society, says that giving the hostel facilities for quarantine is not just national service but service to humanity. Government has initiated these measures to ensure sufficient quarantine facilities under any given situation. Today, not only our beloved country, but the entire world is under threat. Even the most developed nations in the world are reeling under the threat of corona notwithstanding the best of facilities available with them.
The Indian culture of self-discipline, our life values to live frugally will help us to maintain social distancing and break the spread of coronavirus. We, all of us, need to stay safe and healthy taking all the required precautions as directed by the government authorities”.
