MEDICS came under attack from a mob while screening people for Covid-19.

Footage shows rocks and poles being thrown at the health workers, who were wearing protective gear on their visit to Tatpatti Bakhal in Indore, central India.

One said: ‘Enraged locals started chasing and pelting us with stones.’

Two doctors were hurt in the attack and the team had to be rescued by police.

The attack was the result of a misunderstanding about the spread and treatment of coronavirus, an official in Madhya Pradesh state said.
