3 Premium Hotels In Delhi’s Aerocity To Offer 182 Rooms For ‘Paid Quarantine’

There has been a lot of buzz around the quality and condition of quarantine facilities in Delhi. Some patients are feeling that these isolation wards are not ‘up to the mark’. So, the Delhi government has tied up with three premium hotels in order to provide ‘paid quarantine services.’

What’s Happening?

The Delhi government has issued an order under the Delhi Epidemic Diseases, COVID – 19 Regulations, 2020, in which they have asked three hotels to set side 182 rooms for paid quarantine facilities for those who are flying down from abroad.

These three hotels are located in Aerocity and are barely 10-15 minutes drive from the airport. They are Ibis, that will have to set 92 rooms aside, The Lemon Tree Premier, that would be required to keep 54 rooms aside and the Red Fox, which has to keep 36 rooms reserved.

The Delhi government also issued a statement in which they revealed that they already have ‘500 beds ready for immediate hospitalisation in case there is an outbreak in the city, and people need to be hospitalised immediately.’

What’s More?

The rooms are priced at ₹3,100 (plus taxes) per day. This includes the three meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner), two bottles of mineral water, tea, coffee along with wi-fi and television facilities as well.

The hotels are being able to ‘make room’ to be converted into a quarantine facility, because of the decrease in the number of tourists coming to the country. Also, due to various last minute cancellations, there is scope to make the most of it. ‘The hotel management is being extremely cooperative,’ a Delhi government official was reported as saying.
