Coronavirus Outbreak: Seven positive cases reported from Kurar in Malad
Two more positive cases were from Pathanwadi, but nobody in their family has a travel history.
The Kurar police station in Malad (East) has reported seven cases of coronavirus in the recent days. Five members of a family tested positive in Tanaji Nagar slums after one of their family members returned from Dubai last month, before the 21-day nationwide lockdown was implemented.
Two more positive cases were from Pathanwadi, but nobody in their family has a travel history. The elder son worked as a salesman in a private firm. “Their swab samples have been sent to the lab and the COVID-19 reports are awaited,” a police officer said.
During inquiry, the police also came across three people who had returned from Nizamuddin, but they had not attended the Markaz gathering.
Meanwhile, 41 people who had a history of attending the Nizamuddin Markaz gathering were sent to isolation centres on April 1.
