Warangal Urban: District Collector Rajiv Gandhi Hanumanthu has urged the persons who travelled to Delhi and participated in the Tablighi Jamaat event to come forward for coronavirus tests. According to the officials, a total of 32 persons attended the event, and added that they had so far traced 19 of them and put them in isolation.
It may be recalled here that six persons who took part in the event in Nizamuddin died on Monday due to Covid-19. Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao also appealed to the people to come forward for tests voluntarily.
Following the directions from the State government, the district official machinery has plunged into action and started tracing the persons who attended the event. “While we have traced 19, we are looking for the others,” the Collector said.
