A three-year-old in Kerala has tested positive for the rapidly spreading coronavirus, that has affected over a lakh people in over 100 countries and killed more than 3,000.
A 63-year-old woman in Jammu tested positive for coronavirus, making her the first confirmed case in Jammu and Kashmir and the 41st cast in India. The Kerala child had travelled to Italy along with his parents and had returned last Saturday.
The family underwent thermal screening at the Kochi airport soon after they landed. The family was kept in quarantine at a hospital where the child developed the symptoms and eventually tested positive for the infection. Qatar, meanwhile, has temporarily barred travellers from 14 countries including India from today as a precaution against coronavirus.(NDTV)
