Thanjavur/UNI:  The revenue officials have quarantined 12 Indonesian nationals at a mosque at Adhiramapattinam in Thanjavur district of Tamil Nadu.

Official sources said here on Saturday that acting on information that some foreign nationals and some people from Karnataka and West Bengal states were staying at the mosque, a team of revenue and police officials visited place of worship and found 12 Indonesians along with ten persons each from Bengaluru and Kolkata were staying since March 23.

They were quarantined at the mosque.

The officials stamped their hands and took the blood and swab samples from them for analysis.

A group of eight preachers from Thailand, who came to India on a religious tour, were already quarantined at Government Hospital for Thoracic Medicine (GHTM) at Thoppur near Tirumangalam in Madurai district.

The Thai nationals came to Madurai on March 12 and had visited several mosques along with two locals in the city over the past three weeks, before they were tracked by the revenue officials at Malaipatti village in Madurai.

Though the swab test of all the eight Thai nationals and two locals who accompanied them tested negative for COVID-19, they have been kept under quarantine, the sources added.

The number of COVID-19 cases in Tamil Nadu has gone up to 38 till Friday. As many as 277 persons were admitted to isolation wards of hospitals across the state.
