"Till April 10, out of 60 positive cases in Bihar, 23 belong to one particular family in Siwan. Eight others from the same district have reported being coronavirus patients, which effectively means half of the Bihar patients, who tested positive, belong to Siwan," a government official was quoted by Deccan Herald.

As per a report in Deccan Herald, one person had a travel history from Oman who was residing with the family. He belongs to the Raghunathpur block returned to Siwan from Oman on 16 March, detected carrying the infection on 4 April till then he had travelled to several places in the district and ended up infecting 22 people of his own family including women and children.

Siwan is a muslim dominated area with 25 lakh population out of which alomost 50000 people are living abroad for livelihood.

A government official claimed that “Till April 10, out of 60 positive cases in Bihar, 23 belong to one particular family in Siwan. Eight others from the same district have reported being coronavirus patients, which effectively means half of the Bihar patients, who tested positive, belong to Siwan.”

Other than Siwan, Begusarai and Nawada have also been sealed. Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey said, “It will be a curfew-type situation in the sealed areas where no one will be allowed to move out even to purchase milk or vegetables. All essential commodities will be provided to the needy by the government agencies.”

Apart from these districts, the roads leading to Gopalganj and East Champaran districts have been sealed too.
