Four-and-a-half-year-old initially suspected to be the first case of coronavirus in Assam tests negative

The 5th death related to the Wuhan Coronavirus has been reported. The patient was a 56-year-old man who succumbed to Coronavirus. While this is the 5th death in India, it is the 2nd death in Maharashtra relating to the Coronavirus.

A 4.5-year-old infant who initially was suspected of contracting the deadly Wuhan Coronavirus has now tested negative in the second confirmatory test that was conducted at Jorhat Medical College and Hospital (JMCH). The girl hails from Pulibor area in Jorhat district of Assam. The story came to light after Assam Cabinet Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma shared the update on the story on Twitter. Currently, Assam has no live cases of coronavirus.

Earlier, following the initial test, Deputy Commissioner (Jorhat) Roshni Aparanji Korati had said that the result was positive. She also informed that the girl’s family had travelled from Bihar to Mariani in Jorhat via train on March 19. Health authorities brought the girl to Jorhat Medical College and Hospital after she showed symptoms of the Wuhan Coronavirus. Following the second confirmatory test, it is now clear that the infant has not contracted the deadly virus.

The outbreak of the Wuhan has infected 315 people in India alone. The pandemic has given way to hoardings and sale of protective medical equipment at exorbitant prices. Earlier, an FIR was registered against a chemist for allegedly selling N-95 masks at four times the fixed price amid the Wuhan Coronavirus epidemic scare in Himachal Pradesh’s Kangra District on Saturday.

The 5th death related to the Wuhan Coronavirus has been reported. The patient was a 56-year-old man who succumbed to Coronavirus. While this is the 5th death in India, it is the 2nd death in Maharashtra relating to the Coronavirus.

The First Information Report was lodged against the owner of the medical store under section 3/7 of the Essential Commodities act at Kangra Police station on a complaint by the district Food and Civil Supplies Department which was reported to the department by the locals. The medical store is located in Dr. Rajendra Prasad Government Medical College (RPGMC), Tanda.
