As many as 354 suspected cases of coronavirus infection have been identified in Bihar, of which 113 patients were released from isolation after 14-day quarantine. No confirmed positive case has been reported so far in the eastern state.

A Health Department official said on Thursday that from January 15 to March 18, 354 persons returned from coronavirus-infected countries to Bihar and were placed under surveillance immediately.

He said that people arriving at the Patna and Gaya airports were made to undergo thermal screening. So far, more than 19,000 passengers have been screened at both airports.

He said that samples taken from 72 persons suspected to carry the virus have been tested so far, but not a single positive case found in Bihar.

6 with ‘quarantine’ stamps offloaded from Mumbai train

In the second incident in two days, a group of six persons coming from Singapore were deboarded from a Gujarat-bound train after they were detected with the ‘quarantine stamp’ on their back-palms, an official said here on Thursday.

The official said that the six were travelling from Mumbai Central to Vadodara by the Saurashtra Express on a single ticket.

“They were in B1 and B2 coaches and were detected by alert Western Railway officials and the co-passengers. They were offloaded at Borivali station and handed over to a medical team,” said the official.

This is the second major scare after four students coming from Germany were deboarded at Palghar from the Mumbai-Delhi Garib Rath Express on Wednesday after they were detected travelling with the compulsory 14-day ‘quarantine’ stamps.

In both cases, its not clear how they managed to evade the attention of the Mumbai health authorities, reach the railway station, book tickets, board the train and travel unhindered for over an hour before being offloaded.
