Bengaluru: Karnataka Health Minister B. Sriramulu on Thursday said the state government has started marking passengers at the city airport, required to be home quarantined as a precaution to contain the potential spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

"COVID-19 passengers hands being stamped at international airport, Bengaluru. #Indiafightscorona," tweeted Sriramulu.

He shared three photographs of passengers being stamped at the Kempegowda International Airport.

The region above the knuckle of a fossil watch wearing man's left hand bore the stamp: Proud to protect Bengaluru. Home quarantined till April 3.
