Donning a blue jersey with “India” printed on it, a British national expressed gratitude to the country and thanked doctors and staff in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, for taking care of him during his stay at a quarantine centre there. He is now all set to travel back to his home after completing his quarantine period.
Culley Clive Bryant is a Geography professor who came to tour India in October 2019. After visiting Lord Venkateshwara temple in Tirumala, he was bound to stay in Tirupati due to Covid -19 lockdown and was sent to quarantine on March 24.
He was tested negative for two times during his quarantine but despite his 14 days compulsory quarantine period getting over, he could not leave because of the lockdown being imposed by both the Centre and Andhra Pradesh government.
The official suggested him to continue his stay at the centre as there were no accommodation and transport facilities due to lockdown.
In these days, Culley Clive Bryant said he witnessed a best of Indian hospitality and friendly staff taking care of all his need at the tough time.
Now, after getting permission from the UK embassy, Bryant is scheduled to travel to Ahemadabad from Hyderabad at 7 am on April 17 and then to his country at 7 pm via British Airlines.
Expressing his gratitude, Culley Clive Bryant also wrote a letter thanking everyone for the facilities at the quarantine centre.
In the letter, he said: “You will be very well looked after here. Your personal needs will be met by caring and professional staff.”
He has been released from the quarantine centre with the permission of District Collector and Superintendent of Police (Urban).
Culley Clive Bryant now hopes to return to the temple town and offer prayers to Lord Venkateshwara at Tirumala hills once the global pandemic is contained.
