Jeypore: The Koraput district administration has identified two persons from the districts, who had attended Tablighi Jamaat in Delhi’s Nizamuddin, which is being considered a coronavirus hotspot, earlier last month.

“The person from Kotpad is being kept in hospital isolation in Delhi and the other quarantined at a hospital in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh. Both of them will remain in isolation for 14 days,” he added.

Earlier, Kendrapara and Jajpur district administrations had traced a person each in their respective districts with links to the religious gathering. They too are being kept in hospital isolation and their family directed to remain in home quarantine.
