Coronavirus: 50-year-old COVID19 positive man travels by two trains, prays at 2 mosques, attends wedding, infects four others

The Meerut District Magistrate has ordered sealing of areas where he lived and has asked the area to be disinfected. The authorities are also looking for provisions to see if the man could be booked under the Epidemic Diseases Act as he travelled despite being ill.

On Friday, a 50-year-old man who hailed from Khurja in Bulandshahr district in Uttar Pradesh was diagnosed with the deadly Wuhan Coronavirus. He was admitted to LLRM Medical Hospital in Meerut on Thursday night. His relatives who were also tested for COVID-19 infection also tested positive. Reportedly, the man had returned from Maharashtra’s Amravati.

As reported by Times of India, the Bulandshahr man had travelled from Amravati in Maharashtra. He had travelled via Chattisgarh Express and Amravati-Jabalpur Superfast Express to Meerut. On March 19, he had reached his in-laws’ house in Shastri Nagar. The patient had also attended a wedding ceremony in Meerut on 20 March and also offered namaaz at two mosques and travelled to Humayun Nagar on March 22.

The man had visited a private doctor before being admitted to LLRM hospital on March 26. After he tested positive for Coronavirus, he was shifted to an isolation ward. The Health Department had also admitted his wife and 3 brothers-in-law after they tested positive for the deadly disease on Saturday. 37 of his contacts have now been identified and quarantined.

As per the report, the man has no history of foreign travel. The Meerut District Magistrate has ordered sealing of areas where he lived and has asked the area to be disinfected. The authorities are also looking for provisions to see if the man could be booked under the Epidemic Diseases Act as he travelled despite being ill.
