Individuals jump quarantine, Udupi DC warns of stern action-1Udupi: The Udupi district administration has issued stern warning asking people to remain quarantined or face action.

In a video message, Udupi DC Jagadeesh said that at least 6,000 people have came back to Udupi from various places, including Dubai and they all have been quarantined.

"However, there are several complaints that these quarantined persons are venturing out of their quarantine facilities. You need to be staying indoor and not venture out at any cost," he said adding that since their action is against the Epidemic Act, they will be booked under Section 188 and a criminal case will be slammed against them.

"Follow the rules and make sure you do not become the reason for spreading the virus," the DC said.

It may be recalled that the district has witnessed nine corona positive cases so far.
