26 Indian Navy sailors test Covid-19 positive; massive contact-tracing op under way
NEW DELHI: In a major outbreak in the Indian Navy, at least 26 sailors have tested positive for the highly contagious coronavir s in Mumbai, which comes at a time when Covid-19 has adversely hit operations of at least four US and one French nuclear-powered aircraft carriers.
Sources said the sailors, who are from the main shore-based logistics depot INS Angre of the Western Naval Command, have been quarantined at the naval hospital INHS Asvini Mumbai.
A massive “contact tracing” operation is underway to find out the people who have come in contact with the sailors, all of whom stay in one particular block of the bachelors’ resi ntial accommodation at INS Angre.
“The resi ntial block has been declared a containment zone, with the entire INS Angre being put under total lockdown,” said a source. INS Angre is co-located with the naval dockyard at Mumbai, where several frontline warships and submarines are docked.
一位消息人士称:“该居住区已被宣布为隔离区，整个INS Angre已被完全封锁。”INS Angre与孟买的海军造船厂位于同一地点，那里停泊着几艘战舰和潜艇。
“A sailor, who was in touch with an ex-serviceman, had first tested positive for Covid-19 on April 7. On aggressively checking and testing all his primary contacts, 25 other sailors have now been found to be positive. Most of them are asymptomatic. More tests are in progress,” said a source.
This is the biggest coronavir s outbreak in the over 15-lakh strong armed forces till now, even as Maharashtra has proved to be the worst-hit state in the country. The Army has so far reported eight cases, including two doctors, one in New Delhi and the other in Kolkata.
Navy chief Admiral Karambir Singh on April 9 had stressed the need for his force to guard ag inst outbreaks of the deadly coronavir s on board warships and submarines while continuing to maintain full operational readiness, as was reported by TOI.
