People lost their loved ones to the deadly disease which originated in Wuhan, China.
Currently, India has witnessed confirmed cases of 189 and 4 deaths due to COVID-19.
In a recent development, sources report that the anti-CAA protest organiser in the national capital has been tested for Coronavirus (COVID-19). The source further report that Tabrez Khan, a resident of Jahangirpuri Eidgah Road has allegedly organised anti-CAA protests, has been admitted to LNJP hospital’s isolation ward on Wednesday night. Khan mentioned that the test results are awaited. Police have also confirmed to sources doing the rounds that currently there are no protests in Jahangirpuri.

While she is in the isolation ward of Safdarjung hospital, multiple sources also report that Khan’s mother too has tested positive for the novel coronavirus outbreak and is under isolation.
This latest development comes amid the ongoing brawl between Shaheen Bagh protestors and the state authorities to stop their protests amid the fast-spreading coronavirus pandemic.
Previously in the day, a PIL has been lodged in the Supreme Court to get rid of Shaheen Bagh protestors by Advocate Ashutosh Dubey. In spite of countless dialogues between Delhi police and Delhi residents, Shaheen Bagh organisers refused to call off the protests while also claiming that they were aware of the risks.
In addendum, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) requested the District Magistrate, South East Delhi to take appropriate action on a complaint about the assembly of children and infants in Shaheen Bagh protests amid the fast-spreading novel virus infection.
The protesters at Shaheen Bagh in the national capital have been agitating since December 15 last year over the amended Citizenship Act, NRC, and NPR. Previously this week, taking precautionary measures, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that gatherings with more than 50 persons barring weddings will not be permitted in Delhi along with asking gyms, night clubs and spas to remain closed till March 31.
