    Coronavirus Outbreak: 5 Of Family Tested Positive In Kerala, Cases Climb To 40

    More than 3,500 people are dead and 100,000 people have been infected across the world

    With the detection of five positive coronavirus cases from a family in Kerala, the total number of infected people rose to 40 in the country.

    As per information, three in the family had recently visited Italy, one of the nations that reported the most cases of coronavirus. State Health Minister KK Shailaja said the family did not share their travel history at the airport and were not screened.

    Among the five people — all residents of Pathanamthitta district — who tested positive are a couple in their 50s and their 26-year-old son. They have been admitted to the Pathnamathitta general hospital and are under observation.

    The family that went abroad travelled from Venice to Doha and then to Kochi. They reached Kochi on the morning of March 1st, 2020.

    The medical officials have also shifted the elderly parents of the couple to a medical college as a precautionary measure since they are in their ’90s and were living in the same home as the affected three.

    It may be mentioned that India’s first three cases of coronavirus were also reported from Kerala. All three patients have recovered from the disease.

    Nearly 6000 people have been infected with coronavirus in Italy, of whom more than 225 people are dead. The Italian government has placed large parts of the north under lockdown to contain the virus.

    Starting from China’s Wuhan city in December, the coronavirus has spread to over 95 nations and territories. More than 3,500 people are dead and 100,000 people have been infected.
