Ongole: District Collector Dr Pola Bhaskara directed the officials concerned to keep the people coming to native places in the district from various places in the quarantine and send them to homes only after the tests conducted by expert doctors prove they are healthy.

The police officials informed him that 80 people have reached their native village in Korisapadu mandal and another group of people to Chimakurthy mandal on Thursday.
