A three-year-old girl from Kalyan has become the youngest person to be infected by the novel coronavirus in Maharashtra. Also, another death in India due to COVID-19 infection has been reported where a 64-year-old man, who was tested positive in Maharashtra, passed away at Kasturba Hospital.

The state, which has the highest number of Covid-19 cases at 39, ordered partial shutdown as it fortified defences for the next 20 “decisive days” to fight against the novel coronavirus pandemic. “The 33-year-old female and three-year-old female, wife and daughter of a patient diagnosed on 14th March from Kalyan are reported positive on 16th March 2020. DDU, Thane has been informed to do contract tracing and further management,” the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s health department said in a release.

Authorities are on a war footing to contain the outbreak in stage three — community transmission — as is happening in Iran, Korea, United States of America (US) and many parts of Europe, with the last stage being an epidemic, which devastated China.

So far, the state government has isolated 794 people and 717 have tested negative. One hundred and eight people are still in isolation wards and 621 are home quarantined. The state also released 442 people after they completed 14 days of quarantine, said health officials.
