The Indian Army has created a quarantine facility near Manesar, Haryana for around 300 Indians arriving later from Wuhan, China on January 31.
The facility can be used to monitor Indians for weeks by a qualified team of doctors and staff, reported ANI.
The facility has multiple beds where the Indians returning for Wuhan will be quarantined. However, before moving to the Manesar facility, these Indians from China will be first screened at the airport.
Indian students from Wuhan will be screened at the airport by a joint team of Armed Forces Medical Services (AFMS) and Airport Health Authority (APHO).If any of the 300 individuals are found positive or suspected to be infected by the novel coronavirus, they would be moved to an isolation ward at Base Hospital Delhi Cantonment, the Indian Army said.

Frequently Asked QuestionsView moreShowView moreHow does a vaccine work?
A vaccine works by mimicking a natural infection. A vaccine not only induces immune response to protect people from any future COVID-19 infection, but also helps quickly build herd immunity to put an end to the pandemic. Herd immunity occurs when a sufficient percentage of a population becomes immune to a disease, making the spread of disease from person to person unlikely. The good news is that SARS-CoV-2 virus has been fairly stable, which increases the viability of a vaccine.How many types of vaccines are there?
There are broadly four types of vaccine — one, a vaccine based on the whole virus (this could be either inactivated, or an attenuated [weakened] virus vaccine); two, a non-replicating viral vector vaccine that uses a benign virus as vector that carries the antigen of SARS-CoV; three, nucleic-acid vaccines that have genetic material like DNA and RNA of antigens like spike protein given to a person, helping human cells decode genetic material and produce the vaccine; and four, protein subunit vaccine wherein the recombinant proteins of SARS-COV-2 along with an adjuvant (booster) is given as a vaccine.What does it take to develop a vaccine of this kind?
Vaccine development is a long, complex process. Unlike drugs that are given to people with a diseased, vaccines are given to healthy people and also vulnerable sections such as children, pregnant women and the elderly. So rigorous tests are compulsory. History says that the fastest time it took to develop a vaccine is five years, but it usually takes double or sometimes triple that time.
