Thus far, there have been a few cases of infections directly related to the tabligh at Masjid Sri Petaling.  One of the cases reported was a Brunei Covid-19 patient who was seen at the tabligh gathering. His infection had been discovered on the 9th of March, almost one week after he had returned to Brunei by flight.
