British Pakistani quarantine

British Pakistani travelers who are isolating at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel near Heathrow Airport have registered a protest against the inadequate facilities given to them at the quarantine facility.

Sources have revealed that authorities at the quarantine facility are not providing enough meals to 19 quarantined families. Many people have been protesting against the non-provision of food at the time of sehri and iftar.

Hasnain Sheikh, who is quarantining with hundreds of travelers spoke on behalf of the Pakistani families, and described the dire situation at the hotel in a video message.

Sheikh said, “It is a basic human rights matter. People have not received food for the three meals that were contractually supposed to be given to the families. Moreover, The food has not been delivered on time. We are in the midst of Ramazan, and some people have been fasting without receiving any food at all.”

Husnain added that the purpose of making the video was to call to the attention of the UK government authorities towards the conditions of returning travelers.

Expressing that such conditions are unacceptable, Sheikh said that people staying at the hotel had paid a substantial sum for their quarantine living arrangements for ten days.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Department of Health and Social Care said, “Hotels helping managed quarantine facilities can accommodate the large majority of people’s requirements. They are obligated to provide guests with three meals a day, WIFI access, and health support.”

Earlier this month, Pakistan was added to the UK’s “red list” amid concerns about the spread of the new coronavirus variants.

According to the new COVID-related rules introduced by the UK government, people who have visited or passed through a country where travel to the United Kingdom is banned must quarantine for ten whole days in a managed quarantine hotel.
