As informed by the chief district medical officer (CDMO) Jagu Agrawal on Friday, the youth had come in contact with the first patient with whom he had played cricket.

“The district administration during the contract tracing of the first patient had kept the second youth in hospital isolation and sent his blood and swab samples for tests. The results later confirmed that he was corona positive,” he added.
