Vadodara: Chhota Udepur registered its third coronavirus case after a 30-year-old man from Bodeli tested positive on Saturday. Two earlier cases were also reported from Bodeli.
According to the district administration, the patient had reported at the flu OPD as he was suffering from cough and cold. He was asked to get himself admitted and his samples were collected for testing. “We are trying to establish epidemiological connection of the new patient as he is neither a relative of the earlier two patients nor their immediate neighbour,” said district collector Sujal Mayatra.
He added that the administration is now trying to get details of the patient’s travel history and also whom he had met. The patient lives 50 feet away from where the red zone limit ends in Bodeli.
The new patient will undergo treatment at the specially created isolation ward in Chhota Udepur itself. The earlier cases were of a 60-year-old man and his two-year-old granddaughter. The man had travelled to Delhi to attend Tablighi Jamaat congregation last month where he contracted the virus. The duo is undergoing treatment at GMERS Medical College and Hospital in Vadodara.
