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.

Apart from the Brunei patient, the latest update from the tabligh gathering is that a 60-year-old Malaysian man was confirmed with Covid-19 infection on the 10th of March. Cases of positive Coronavirus infections from the tabligh gathering has created the fear of mass infections.
