The Delhi based battalion of the personnel in the central reserve police force has said to be positive for the virus and the number has risen to 122.
The men belong to the 31st battalion of the paramilitary which is based in Mayur vihar
phase 3 area of the national capital and has been completely sealed after the rise of a
a significant number of cases being encountered.
A senior official made the statement saying that over 122 personnel have been found
positive for the virus and the results for the 100 personnel are yet to have revealed.
But the fact to notice is that most of the troopers are found to be infected but asymptomatic which is a relief during such adverse conditions.
12 troopers tested positive on Friday and a 55-year-old senior sub-inspector succumbed to the disease earlier this week. the big numbers have alarmed the officials and the in charges to test the rest of the personnel for the virus and to do so, dichotomous orders were issued.
The main order to be followed was that nay personnel who is having the infection or is going back after a few days has to quarantine themselves for the 14 days which is the advisory timeline for all the affected people.but after seeing a few results the decision was taken that the medical team consisting of doctors and health care experts can be taken off from the quarantine of they do not show any symptoms of the infection after 5 days.
A primary source for the spread of the virus among the personnel in the battalion suspected here is the person who joined after serving his leave period that was sanctioned for NCR.
It was being said that he was posted in another battalion of CRPF in Jammu and Kashmir
and there is no surety of how he caught the infection. The family members of the personnel were also tested to be negative. It has a possibility that some other person must have caught the infection and is responsible for the spread of the virus among the officers.
All the angles are being judges by the higher authorities and it has come out to be that
nursing attendant was not kept in proper quarantine. strictness was not shown which has to lead to the outbreak of the infection among the troopers.
