NEW DELHI, Feb 28: The Centre has issued instructions to Indians to avoid all non-essential travel to Singapore, South Korea, Iran and Italy in order to prevent infection from the fast-spreading coronavirus (covid-19) contagion, which has claimed nearly 3000 lives, mainly in Wuhan in China, the epicentre of the viral outbreak. This fresh advisory follows a similar directive issued earlier against travel to a few other countries reporting coronavirus cases.

People coming from these countries and those who have already arrived after February 10 last may be quarantined for 14 days.

Dr Harsh Vardhan, Union Minister for Health & Family Welfare, senior officers of the Health Ministry of the rank of Jt. Secretary and above are visiting the States to assess their preparedness for surveillance and management of COVID-19. He said, “These visits shall ensure strengthening of the State surveillance machinery and to address their concerns, if any. A checklist is provided to them for compliance; they will submit the report by March 2, 2020”.

The Minister said 4,82,927 passengers have been screened from 4787 flights so far. Screening is going on at all major airports and seaports. Surveillance teams have been deputed to keep a watch at the borders, particularly along Nepal border. Passengers are further monitored under community surveillance through IDSP network on a daily basis. A total of 23,531passengers are presently under community surveillance through IDSP, he added.

Of the 2836 samples sent for testing, 2830 have been found negative. Three samples found positive in Kerala. These patients have recovered and have been discharged. Three results are awaited.

All the 645 people evacuated from coronavirus-hit Wuhan in China early this month and quarantined at the army unit at Manesar in Haryana on the outskirts of Delhi and at the ITBP camp at Chhawla in west Delhi tested negative and discharged by February 19.

Yesterday morning the remaining Indians in Wuhan as also those Indians trapped on the infected cruise ship Diamond Princess quarantined at Yokohama off Tokyo, were brought to Delhi by IAF's Globemaster transport aircraft which flew medical aid to Wuhan and an Air India flight from Japan. None of them has shown any symptoms. However, three Indians have stayed back and 16 are in hospitals in Japan.
