To prevent the chance of spread of the deadly virus, the Delhi Government has ordered the closure of all primary schools within the capital, both government and private, till March 31, 2020.

India, which was free of the deadly virus after the earlier three people recovered in Kerala, reported three fresh cases, in Delhi, Jaipur, and Hyderabad on March 2. On March 4, 23 more people were tested positive for the virus in the country, 15 among whom include Italian tourists.

The patient, who was tested positive of coronavirus in Delhi, reportedly has travel history from Italy. The second confirmed coronavirus case in Hyderabad has a travel history from Dubai. The third case in Jaipur is an Italian tourist who showed symptoms of the deadly virus. He was tested negative during the first testing but when his condition worsened, a second sample was collected and that came out to be positive.

The Indian government has decided to screen all passengers entering the nation from foreign countries. Those who show even the slightest symptoms are going to be kept in isolation for a minimum of 14 days, as in some cases the virus takes a handful of days to show symptoms.
