The latest test result of the woman medical student who was the first positive case of novel Coronavirus (nCoV) in India has come out negative and is in stable condition. She arrived in India from China’s Wuhan region.

According to the Kerala State Health Department as of now, 34 people are in isolation wards across various hospitals in the State.

“The blood test result of the first patient from Thrissur, from the National Institute of Virology (NIV) testing center at Alappuzha, shows a negative result. But we need confirmation from the NIV at Pune,” a senior medical officer said.

After the first positive case was reported from Thrissur, two other Keralite students from Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus, had tested positive in Alappuzha and Kasaragod districts. The health department had earlier said those in isolation wards of various hospitals in the State have come down to 34.
