The Third case, according to the statement, is for a 21-year-old man with initial symptoms, as all three cases are under constant observation by the medical staff.

Dear ''I am Bajrangi Bhaijan'',
Kindly keep your cheap advice and copy-cat comments with yourself.
People like you should be shot dead on the spot !!

If somebody is sick or doubtful, immediately report to nearest medical center. Hiding like a rat will cause harm to other people and spread more.
Take care my friends.

Only our own personal hygiene and self care can help us from getting affected

Personal advise: Please don''t show any symptoms of fever or body temperature at airport while returning back from holiday.

Have a happy and healthy vacation friends

As mentioned earlier, repeated denials are a sign of concealment.
Who knows how many more are infected without detection.
Wear face mask and maintain hygiene at all costs esp. dirty people.
Disease spreads if unhygienic conditions prevail.
Be safe and may the gods save us all.
