Read: Coronavirus: Read how this Saudi-returned woman may have set off a chain of infections including anti-CAA protests in Delhi

The district surveillance team is trying to extract the list of patients who visited the doctor between the suspicious time period. It is important to note that Maujpur was one of the areas worst hit by the last month’s anti-Hindu riots.

A woman who had returned from Saudi Arabia had set off the chain of Wuhan coronavirus infection in the city. The Muslim woman has now reportedly transmitted the virus to her family members and now a doctor too. The woman’s mother and two daughters, too, have tested positive.

The viral infection was transmitted to her brother-Tabrez Khan, one of the organisers of the Jahangiri anti-CAA protests, who was admitted to the LNJP hospital and tested positive for the contagion. Khan had continued to visit the protest site after meeting his sister. Following this, it was widely feared the Jahangirpur anti-CAA protest may soon emerge as a hotspot for the novel coronavirus as several protestors were defying rules to assemble at the spot despite one of the organisers was tested positive for the coronavirus.
