Six Chinese nationals, who arrived in Himachal Pradesh in the past few days, were put under surveillance yesterday in view of the novel coronavirus outbreak in China. The Chinese nationals, who arrived in Shimla in two batches on February 13 and February 16 through Kolkata, were asymptomatic. They have been put under surveillance and advised to report to the health officials in case of symptoms of cough and fever.

Officials of the integrated disease surveillance programme (IDSP) visited the home stay in Lakkar Bazar where they have been staying and found that they were asymptomatic. None of the six Chinese nationals visited Wuhan, the epicentre of the novel coronavirus outbreak, after January 15.


Five of them came to India from China on January 28 and 29, whereas the sixth Chinese national came from Malaysia on January 29.
