At least 15,000 people who may have caught the coronavirus from a “super-spreader” guru are under strict quarantine in northern India after the Sikh religious leader died of COVID-19.

The 70-year-old guru, Baldev Singh, had returned from a trip to Europe’s virus epicentre Italy and Germany when he went preaching in more than a dozen villages in Punjab state.

The article goes on to state the following:

It has sparked one of India’s most serious alerts related to the pandemic and special food deliveries are being made to each household under even tighter restrictions than the 21-day nationwide stay-at-home order imposed by the government.

“The guru refused to self-quarantine after returning from Italy, instead visiting dozens of villages,” Washington Examiner tweeted.

“15,000-20,000 people in India have been infected by a super-spreader. He was a spiritual guru,” tweeted Ian Miles Cheong, managing editor of Human Events.
