Religious meets are turning out to be the biggest cause for the spread of Corona virus. Take for instance, a family of five has been reported Corona positive after they attended a religious meet organised in Delhi.

Similarly, a close relative of a people's representative, attended a Tableegh congregation along with 18 of his friends in Delhi. Now, he and two of those who accompanied him have been declared Corona positive. The officials have now kept their family members and all those who travelled with them under quarantine. In another development, an old man and his wife of Prakasam district, who also attended the same meet, were reported Corona positive. Several cases in Telangana too have the same Delhi connection. One person is from Nampalli. Another 74-year-old person who attended the same meeting, died. Another man from Old City, who too attended the same meet has been reported positive.

If sources are to be believed, as many as 3500 persons from both the Telugu states have attended the religious meetings. At least 16 persons from Chirala too have attended the meeting. Telangana health minister Etela Rajender asked the people to offer Namaz at home and not to go to their prayer houses.
