Total number of people under home quarantine and observation in State at 179

The fast global spread of 2019 -nCoV and the huge numbers of people getting affected is indeed a cause for worry, even as the Health Department said all possible precautions are being taken to improve surveillance and to quarantine anyone with a travel history to China.

What has indeed stumped the authorities is the huge number of people coming to the State from China. On Saturday, 179 new persons who reported travel history to China in the past three weeks were identified. None of them are symptomatic, thus taking the number of people under home quarantine and observation to 728. While two who had been isolated in hospitals on Friday were allowed to leave, two new persons were added to the isolation list on Saturday. The number of persons admitted to isolation wards in hospitals with mild symptoms remains at seven.

The department has advised major hotels receiving international guests to display the nCoV advisory properly in the hotel for the benefit of foreign travellers.
