On Tuesday, Tablighi Jamaat member from Nepal, who tested positive for coronavirus has reportedly ran away from hospital in Baghpat in Uttar Pradesh.

The Uttar Pradesh Police released the man’s photo along with some information about the man. The cops have urged people to help tracing the Nepali man.

The mid-March Islamic religious gathering was attended by thousands of Jamaat members, along with hundreds of foreigners — many of them suspected coronavirus-positive — and has triggered a nationwide scare of community spread of the virus.

Indian authorities have launched a nationwide search for participants of the huge religious gathering amid fears that thousands present there could have carried the infection to the length and breadth of the country.

Various nationals, particularly from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Nepal, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Kyrgyzstan come for Tabligh activities in Delhi.
