Social media’s anti-social virus

Staff Reporter Dimapur, Apr 4 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/4/2020 1:26:16 PM IST
A leak that went viral on social media has put scores of people from North East on the dock as their mobiles were tracked to have been near or around the ‘hot spot’ Nizamuddin area of old Delhi between March 14 to 21,2020. 
As reported, the document marked ‘SECRET’ by service providers was for state governments in the North East. The objective was to reach out to those who had travelled near the ‘hot spot’ and to enquire about their health status. 
Some of the complainants who arrived Dimapur on or before March 14, have so far not exhibited the symptoms besides competing the 14-day incubation/quarantine period. Police authorities have yet to respond to their written complaints on the plea that this would be dealt with by Cyber Crime cell. The consequence of the leak on social media has made some health officials involved with COVID-19 apply pressure on the returnees whose only crime appear to be of having travelled near Nizamduddin, while other those who returned from other cities having high COVID-19 cases are being left off.
