Telangana Health Minister Says Around 1200 Telangana People went To Markaj

The count of the positive cases increased at once with more than two thousand people participating in the religious ceremony at the Markaj masjid in Delhi. This resulted in the massive jump of the count of the cases in Telugu states suddenly.

Speaking about the same Telangana Health Minster Etela Rajendra said that around 1200 people from Telangana have visited the Markaj and all of them have been traced out by the state except 160 people and added that community transmission did not take place in the state.

"Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao was the first to demand a ban on all international and domestic flights. Even before other States, Telangana was already implementing a complete lockdown. We were the first to alert about the Markaz meeting and its implications to New Delhi as well," Rajender said.

"Barring the 160 missing persons, we have managed to locate the rest of the persons. In fact, all of them are in various Government hospitals and undergoing diagnostic tests. We have achieved this in just 48 hours, which reflects the strength of our surveillance teams," he added.
