MUMBAI: In India, the defence officials have reported a coronavirus outbreak at a key naval base in Mumbai.
According to a statement issued by Indian Navy, 21 personnel have tested positive for Covid-19 at INS Angre.
The outbreak of coronavirus in India has set off a series of attacks against Muslims across the country, as Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist government is claiming that Muslims are spreading the virus.
In an unprecedented marginalization, the public hospital Ahmedabad Civil Hospital has made separate wards for Hindu and Muslim patients suffering from coronavirus.
Middle East Eye has quoted Medical Superintendent Dr Gunvant Rathod as saying that they had only implemented the order of the government representatives. He said normally a hospital had male and female wards, but they had to made Hindu and Muslim wards for treatment of Covid-19 patients.
