Karimnagar: Karimnagar district, which is yet to recover from the coronavirus scare after a group of 10 Indonesians who had preached in the town tested positive, is going through a second round of anxiety with reports of at least nine persons participating in the religious congregation at Nizamuddin in New Delhi.

District officials, who are still busy in identifying people who interacted with the Indonesian preachers who are now undergoing treatment in a designated hospital in Hyderabad, have now shifted their focus to people who returned from New Delhi after the Nizamuddin meeting between March 1 and 15.
