According to reports, one of five samples has been sent for tests to AIIMS and it has tested negative for coronavirus. Results of the remaining four samples sent today are awaited, an official said.

Reportedly, an official said that any individual suspected to be infected with the novel coronavirus will be shifted to an isolation ward at Delhi Cantonment Base Hospital.

The Indo-Tibetan Border Police have also prepared a 600-bed facility in Delhi to quarantine and provide basic medical care to those suspected to have been infected with the coronavirus.
