Three Nepali migrant workers have been infected with COVID-19 in Bahrain. Two of the three tested positive on Saturday, while one was diagnosed with the disease on Sunday.

A national daily quoted Nepal’s Ambassador to Bahrain Padam Sundas as saying that all three have been hospitalised in a special hospital.

Sundas, however, did not reveal the name of the infected Nepali nationals or their address in Nepal for privacy reasons. It is also unclear which hospital they have been admitted to in Bahrain.

Sundas further informed that three more Nepali migrant workers had been placed under 14-day quarantine on suspicion of COVID-19 infection.
