Indian Ambassador to Iran Gaddam Dharmendra visited coronavirus-hit Qom where he met the provincial governor and interacted with the stranded Indian pilgrims at a quarantine facility in the city. External Affairs Ministry last month said that over 250 Indians have been infected with coronavirus in Iran and an elderly person aged over 70 years died.
The ambassador also paid a courtesy call on Dr Bahram Sarmast, the Governor of Qom, and expressed gratitude to him for the support and cooperation extended to all Indian pilgrims presently in Qom, including arrangements for COVID-19 infected pilgrims.  Mr Dharmendra, who was accompanied by senior officials of the embassy during the day-long visit, assured the Governor that all efforts will be made for the early return of the remaining pilgrims to India
The Indian diplomat later visited a quarantine facility specially set up for Indian pilgrims in Qom, the holy city in Iran where the first Coronavirus case emerged in February. He closely interacted with the pilgrims and enquired about their well being. The pilgrims thanked the government of India and the Embassy for their continued support towards them. 58,226 people have tested positive for the virus and 3,603 people have died in Iran, the worst affected Middle East country.
