Nagpur, December 24

A 28-year-old man who recently returned from the UK has tested positive for coronavirus at Nagpur in Maharashtra, an official said on Thursday.

After the government earlier this week imposed travel restrictions to and from the UK, the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) appealed to those having recent travel history to that country to inform the civic body about it.

"The person concerned on his own informed us about his travel history to the United Kingdom. He returned to Nagpur from the UK 15 days back," NMC Commissioner Radhakrishnan B told PTI.

His RT-PCR test was conducted on Tuesday and he tested positive on Wednesday. The patient's swab samples have been sent to the National Institute of Virology, Pune, for further examination, the official said.

"We don't know whether it is the old mutant or new mutant (of the virus). He has mild symptoms and as a precautionary measure, he has been kept at a different ward in the Government Medical College and Hospital here," he said.

Three to four family members of the man have also been tested. They are quarantined at home and are being monitored, the civic chief said.

He appealed to people having recent travel history to the UK and Europe to come forward and get them tested. PTI
