Daman: Two people tested positive for coronavirus in the Union Territory of Daman on Tuesday, which was marked green zone till now, officials said.
The two patients, a 41 year old man and a four year old girl, both who arrived here from Mumbai recently, were shifted to a hospital in Marwad area of Daman, District Collector Rakesh Minhas said.
“Till now, the man was kept at a government run quarantine facility, while the girl was home quarantined with her parents in Khariwad area. We have shifted both the patients to a hospital in Marwad,” he said. The girl’s parents, whose reports came out negative, have also been shifted to the isolation ward of the hospital, the official said.
Since the 41 year old patient was kept at the quarantine center soon after he arrived here from Mumbai, he did not come into contact with any local, the collector said.
“We have declared Khariwad area as a containment zone after the girl’s report came out positive. We have also initiated disinfection and contact-tracing in the area,” he added.
