Three more people tested positive for Corona virus in Maharashtra

PTI
Three more people tested positive for the Corona virus in Maharashtra yesterday. All of them had come in contact with a man and a woman who had tested positive a day earlier. A press release issued by the State Health Department said that samples of a man and a woman from Pune, who had been to Dubai recently, tested positive on Monday evening.  Later, their daughter and the driver of the cab in which the family had traveled from the Mumbai airport to Pune also tested positive. Apart from these two, a co-passenger who was on the same Dubai-Mumbai flight as the couple, has also tested positive.

All the five - three family members, the driver and the flight passenger - are in isolation at the Naidu Hospital in Pune. Currently, 17 patients are in isolation in Pune, five positive cases and 12 suspected. The Administration is now tracking a group of 40 persons who were with the couple on their trip to Dubai. These 40 persons are from various districts in the state. Since Dubai was not in the initial list of the 19 countries from where citizens were being screened, they were not screened at Mumbai airport.

The Administration has formed five teams which include officials from the Revenue Department, Police, Health and both Pune and Mumbai Municipal Corporations to track those who had travelled with the couple to Dubai. In addition, it is also listing down people who came in contact with the couple at their workplace or the areas where they visited to keep a check on them too.
