Odisha government on Monday announced that people coming to Odisha from abroad will be given an incentive of Rs. 15,000 for registration and home-isolation amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The decision was taken considering that the biggest source of infection of COVID-19, is persons coming from abroad into the State.

Anyone coming to the state from abroad can register themselves by dialling 104 or through the government's online portal. This should be done within 24 hours of arrival.

"Their location will be tracked during their home isolation and mandated number of calls will be made everyday to keep a close watch and give appropriate medical guidance."
