2nd COVID-19 Case In India’s Lucknow Linked To Doctor From Canada

16 Mar, 2020

    The second confirmed case of COVID-19 has been reported from Lucknow.


    A 20-year-old man, resident of Indiranagar, was shifted to the isolation ward of the King George’s Medical University (KGMU), on Saturday morning after the lab test confirmed the virus.


    D. Himanshu, in charge of the Isolation Unit of the KGMU, said that the patient was first admitted to the isolation ward of the Civil Hospital on Friday night after health officials came to know that he came in close contact with the female doctor from Canada, who had tested positive on Wednesday and is undergoing treatment at the KGMU.


    The 35-year-old woman, a doctor by profession, had come to Lucknow along with her doctor husband from Canada on March 1 and was living at her parents’ house in Gomti Nagar.


    The authorities had tested her husband as well as eight family members and two others with whom she had been in contact with during the stay.


    All were found to be negative, but have been advised isolation at home for at least 15 days.


    Later, 22 others who met the family and couple during this period were also traced and their swab samples were sent for testing. They included the man who has now been tested positive.


    The remaining 21 have been found to be negative but asked to isolate themselves for at least two weeks.


    “We will now also test all those who have been in contact with the man,” said Narendra Agarwal, Chief Medical Officer, Lucknow.


    “Besides, the health department has constituted 150 teams to undertake sanitization, screening and awareness activities in Indira Nagar and Gomti Nagar areas”, said Nodal Officer, Communicable Diseases, Vikasendu Agarwal.
