Mar 31, 2020 11:36 IST

Delhi's health minister Satyendar Jain has said that 24 people who were present at the Markaz building in Nizamuddin have tested positive for coronavirus. He added that around 1,500 to 1,700 people have been estimated by the government to have assembled at the site. Over 334 people have been sent to hospitals and over 700 others have been sent to a quarantine centre. Meanwhile, amid multiple reports claiming that the establishment had violated lockdown, the Markaz issued a detailed clarification, saying that with a hastily carried out lockdown, people were stranded and were forced to seek accommodation at the premises, on the orders of Prime Minister Modi for people to stay put at where they were.
