The leader of the central team which is currently inspecting the arrangements in Kerala set up to deal with the coronavirus threat, Shaukat Ali, said that 436 people are under observation in the state in the wake of the deadly virus taking a heavy toll, in China, where it was first reported.

“We have to get one more result of the samples that have been sent. So far all the samples that have been tested here have been negative. Kerala has made all the preparations to tackle this virus,” Ali said.

“While screening of all passengers arriving at the Cochin airport began on Sunday, similar facilities are now in place at the Thiruvananthapuram airport, starting from today,” added Ali.

“Things are tough here and we are all looking forward to the Indian government to see that they are brought back to India,” said the medical student who spoke to the media over phone from Wuhan.
