Nagpur updates: Twenty-eight persons, including three Azerbaijan nationals who are currently in Gadchiroli, were tested negative for novel coronavirus (Covid-19) infection on Thursday. 

Their samples were sent to the lab at Indira Gandhi Government Medical College and Hospital (IGGMCH or Mayo) from across Vidarbha and other parts of Central India.
Out of the 28 swab samples, 21 were from Amravati, two from Nagpur GMCH, three from Gadchiroli, one from Akola and one from Buldhana.

In Nagpur, no fresh case was reported while suspects from the city and several places were reported at the government colleges.

Authorities in Chandrapur heaved a sigh of relief after a passenger, who had come in contact with positive patients in some other state, was alighting from a train coming from Hyderabad and taken to GMCH there on Wednesday evening. His swabs were sent to Mayo lab. He is yet to be discharged.

There was panic after reports emerged that three Azerbaijan nationals have developed symptoms while they stay in Gadchiroli. Report about a flyer who was advised home quarantine from this district too is awaited.
