Agra, March 15, 2020

The Agra district administration has lodged a case against a coronavirus patient and her family for hiding about her condition.

The case has been registered under sections 269 and 270 of the CrPC in Agra's Sadar Bazar police station.

A team of health department members who had reached the then suspected patient's house were misled by the woman and her family.

The woman who lives in Agra Cantonment railway colony had recently travelled to Italy for her honeymoon. After they returned, her husband had tested positive for the virus in Bengaluru while she returned to her family.

Last week, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared coronavirus a global pandemic.

Around the world at least 1,45,374 confirmed cases have been reported and more than 5,400 people have lost their lives due to the virus. So far, India has detected more than 100 positive cases of COVID-19.
