The sources said that these 5 buildings inhabited by more than 600 people who have been in contact with these cases of Asian workers have been taking preventive health precautionary measures to deal with such cases.
The sources revealed that one of the three Indian nationalities is among the cases of epidemiological investigation, working as a tailor and transmitting the infection to 3 of the same nationality, as the Indian technician transmitted the infection to three others, and a Bangladeshi infected working in an industrial area transferred the infection to other 3 also.
The addresses of the 8 infected people who are under epidemiological investigation are different, and they have no relationship with each other, which increases the risk index of such infection. The appropriate departments in the ministry are trying hard to solve the code and puzzle these infections.
