The information was confirmed by Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb in a tweet.

Biplab Deb, however, stated that there is no need to panic. Instead, he said, the need of the hour was to stay safe and stay at home. “Alert! First #COVID19 positive case detected at Tripura. The patient is from Udaipur. Don’t panic, we are taking proper care of the patient. Stay Home Stay Safe. Update at: 8 PM/April 6,” Biplab Deb said in a tweet.
