The deadly coronavirus has crept inside the Indian Navy as well. Around 21 Navy Personnel have been tested positive for the virus. The 21 serving personnel tested positive within naval premises at Mumbai. The incident has come to light from shore-based logistics and administrative support establishment of the Western Naval Command.
Out of the 21 personnel, 20 are sailors of INS Angre, a shore establishment at Mumbai. The present count of affected personnel may go up as some of the test results are awaited at the moment. Most of the affected are asymptomatic.
The links have been traced to a single sailor who was tested positive on 7th April. All who have tested positive resided in the same accommodation block at INS Angre. The entire in-living block was immediately put under quarantine – containment zone and INS Angre too is under lockdown.
