PURULIA: Residents of the village of Vangidi in Balarampur, in the Purulia district of West Bengal, who recently returned from Chennai, were quarantined for 14 days in a tree as they do not have a separate room in their homes to isolate themselves following Covid- 19 outbreak.

Seven Vangidi villagers, who are in quarantine, worked as workers in Chennai.
