Amid pandemic, a building called Quarantine in MP’s Sagar
The terms quarantine and isolation centres not well known until last year  when the Covid-19 pandemic hit the world. Everywhere, isolation centres formed to prevent spread of the most deadly virus, Covid-19. 

But an over 100-year-old heritage building known locally as “quarantine” has been a popular spot at Malthaun in Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar district. Local says that "Quarantine is a building constructed by British colonialists. It was used for the treatment of people who infected by Spanish flu. 

At the time of 1918-19,  it was one of the worst Spanish flu pandemic situation in history and advanced all over the world. 

Spanish flu is estimated to kill at least 50 million worldwide, it had affected 500 million people or one - third of  the population globally, according to United States centres for diseases control and cure. 

Rameshwar Prasad Tiwari, 87, a local resident, said his parents would tell him    when people infected by Spanish flu, this building was helped to isolate people  and to provide treatment to the effected people. “When I used to share this story with my sons and grandsons, they used to say how can someone be locked in a building for treatment, But after Covid-19 struck, they started believing me.”
