Two confirmed cases of coronavirus were reported today from India. One of the patients is from New Delhi while the other one is from Telangana, the ministry of health and family welfare said. It said that both the patients are stable and are being closely monitored.

The person from Delhi has a travel history from Italy and is now being treated at RML Hospital while the one from Telangana has a travel history from Dubai.

This is not the first positive case of the disease in India. Earlier, COVID-19 was confirmed among 3 students from Kerala but later on all of them were discharged from hospital after treatment.

Indians have been advised to especially avoid non-essential travel to Iran, Italy, Korea and Singapore, health minister Dr Harsh Vardhan said in a press briefing. Depending on the global evolving scenario, travel restrictions could be imposed as a precautionary measure.

Asking people to not panic, he said whenever in doubt related to symptoms of the coronavirus disease one must approach the government's helpline number. "The situation is being monitored at the highest level. The Prime Minister is himself keeping a close eye on the situation," Vardhan said.

As the news of coronavirus was reported, the stock markets too took a u-turn. The Sensex, which had gone up by around 800 points in morning trade, was trading lower by 330 points.

Coronavirus has infected almost 90,000 people globally and caused more than 3,000 deaths, including 2,912 in China so far. The rapid spread of the coronavirus has increased fears of a pandemic, with the World Health Organization (WHO) raising its global spread and impact risk alert to "very high" on Friday.
