Coronavirus Fight: Tablighi Jamaat member spits on doctor

This person had recently come to the city and had attended a meeting of the Tablighi Jamaat in Delhi, where he had become infected with coronavirus.

New Delhi: Despite nationwide outcry over their actions, it seems that the Tablighi Jamaat members are still not willing to co-operate in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

One such news has surfaced from Kanpur, where a Tablighi Jamaat member has mis-behaved with a doctor.

According to information received, a 33-year-old man from Meerut, who attended the Tablighi Jamaat meeting in Delhi recently and tested positive for coronavirus, allegedly created a ruckus at Sarsaiya Community Health Center in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh. He was quarantined here.

The man was transferred from Rama Medical College, Mandhana, Kanpur.

“Not only did he create a ruckus in the hospital, but he also spit on a doctor. He then locked the room from inside, demanding better facilities,” Medical Superintendent S.L. Verma said.

The problem increased to such an extent that police had to be called to control the patient.

This person had recently come to the city and had attended a meeting of the Tablighi Jamaat in Delhi, where he had become infected with coronavirus.

“On Friday, he was kept in quarantine at Rama Medical College as a precaution,” the health officer said.
