One more person tested positive for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Kolkata late on Wednesday. The 66-year-old man is a resident of Nayabad in the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass of east Kolkata.
He has been admitted to Peerless Hospital, and is under strict observation. The patient had travelled to Midnapore recently for a wedding reception, and had perhaps come in contact with some persons who had returned from abroad, sources said. The state administration is probing this. His family members are now under quarantine, and police officers are guarding his house in Nayabad.
