Punjab: Health Department to quarantine all Hazur Sahib returnees from Nanded after 5 asymptomatic patients test positive for Coronavirus

Deputy Commissioner (Mohali), Girish Dayalan, had informed that all pilgrims who returned from Hazur Sahib would be tested for the Chinese virus.

On Monday, the State Health Department of the Punjab Government had issued an order to put devotees returning to the state from Takht Sri Hazur Sahib in Nanded in Maharashtra in quarantine facilities as a precautionary measure, after five asymptomatic devotees were diagnosed with the Wuhan Coronavirus in Tarn Taran.

Deputy Commissioner (Mohali), Girish Dayalan, had informed that all pilgrims who returned from Hazur Sahib would be tested for the Chinese virus. If their results were negative, then they would be placed under home quarantine for 14 days. However, if their test results turned out to be positive, then they would be isolated at government-run quarantine facilities.

Reportedly, 3 additional pilgrims who had returned from Hazur Sahib also tested positive for the Chinese virus in Kapurthala. They include a woman (58), youth (38) and a young girl (11). Those who tested positive for Coronavirus in Tarn Taran have been identified to be belonging to the town of Surasingh. Initially, 50 samples were collected and all returnees were quarantined at home.
