New Delhi: Tablighi Jamaat, the super coronavirus spreader in India seems to have caused a surge in positive coronavirus cases in Pakistan too.
Congress leader Manish Tewari said in a tweet, “Interesting: it seems that Tabalegi Jamat has created problems in Pakistan as well as with COVID-19. It seems to be a sect problem. Listen.”
Tewari attached a video from a Pakistani news channel that featured an interview with Yasmin Rashid, Health of the Punjab province in Pakistan. Half of the cases in Pakistan come from Punjab, which is also the largest province.
Rashid said the main reason for the jump in cases in the province was Jamaat Tabligh. He said that of the total 2004 positive cases of COVID-19, 1314 were related to the Tabligh Jamaat.
Rashid said that 549 cases from the Tablighi Jamaah came positive which caused a sudden increase in the number of cases.
He added that based on statistics, of the 10,000 Tablighi Jama’ah in quarantine when they underwent tests, 35-40 percent tended to be positive.
As a result, cases will rise further because the number of tests has been increased by the government.
In a previous tweet, Tewari said, “Why can’t these people of Tabligh behave themselves? Don’t these people realize that they have done enough damage? If you preach the word of God, you must first learn to be a responsible member of society. For them enough doesn’t seem enough. ”
