Two people who tested positive for coronavirus last month were released from a local hospital after they tested negative on Sunday, officials said.

The two were undergoing treatment at the Government Medical College and Hospital in Sector 32.

One of the two was the city’s first coronavirus patient, a 23-year-old woman who tested positive after she came back from London.

The woman tested positive for virus thrice before her results came back negative on Monday.  Doctors said she showed no symptoms for the last 10 days.

Her mother and brother who also positive were recently released from the hospital.

Chandigarh has so far recorded 18 coronavirus cases. India’s coronavirus tally currently stands over 4,000, with over 100 deaths.

Some 12 people who came in direct contact with her and some 130 secondary contacts were tracked down and quarantined.
