Police forces have been deployed at the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narain hospital in Delhi after several members of the Tablighi Jamaat who were evacuated from the Nizamuddin Markaz in the last two days threatened doctors and refused to get themselves tested or admitted in the hospital.
News agency ANI quoted the hospital director Kishore Singh saying that the Jamaatis instead of giving into treatment are proving to be a health risk for the doctors and other staff by objecting to getting tested. They had no option but to call in the police.
Yesterday, TV visuals showed the Jamaatis spitting from the buses and at doctors and medical staff at the hospital they were kept. The Tablighi Jamaat members who were shifted to quarantine facilities in Delhi after exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 behaved in an unruly manner with the facility staff and doctors. The occupants made unreasonable demands for food, misbehaved and abused staff members and started spitting all over and on persons working/attending them, including doctors. They also started roaming around the hostel building.
