Indians make up the second-highest group of people affected, after Bahrainis. This is not a surprise as Indians form the biggest expat community in Bahrain. Meanwhile, 5% of the affected cases are Bangladeshi. The remaining 10% coronavirus patients are of different nationalities.
Most of the infected expats are from the already quarantined labour camp. The most recent one being the 41 infected expat workers on 7th April from a housing in Hidd.
