Coronavirus Outbreak: Army seals Islamabad’s Bhara Kahu after multiple Tablighi Jamaat members tested positive

The Pakistan Army has completely sealed Islamabad’s Bhara Kahu on Wednesday after a group of people there tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Earlier on Monday, the Islamabad administration decided to impose a complete ban on the movement of people in Bhara Kahu’s Kot Hathyal after a number of members of the Tablighi Jamaat were diagnosed with coronavirus.

At least 11 members of the Tablighi Jamaat, who were staying in a mosque in Bhara Kahu area, have tested positive.

According to the police official, the members of Tablighi Jamaat had met dozens of people in the area. They have been moved to isolation wards now.

“A foreigner was also part of this group and tested positive too,” he said.

“The entire area has been turned into quarantine and the people of the area will be tested.”
