Jamaat coronavirus patient spits at nurse in Trichy

One of the Tablighi Jamaat followers who attended the congregation in Delhi on March 25th and now in a hospital in Tiruchirappalli has done what a lot of other Tablighi Jamaat followers have been doing – spitting on doctors and nurses.

A person who tested positive for Covid-19 reportedly spat on a nurse in the isolation ward of the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital in Tamil Nadu’s Tiruchirappalli.The accused was one among the 36 patients from the single source event in the capital of the country last month.

“Single Source event” is a euphemism for Tablighi Jamaat congregation.

He not just spit on the nurse but also “removed his mask and threw it at the nurse”.  The extremist has been charged under Sections 269 (negligent act likely to spread infection of disease), 270 (Malignant act likely to spread infection of disease) and 271 (Disobedience to quarantine rule) of the Indian Penal Code.
