    Sad, may his soul rest in peace. The Government should have kept him in isolation when he landed on Indian soil. He might have come across so many people in Gujrat and Maharashtra. Very big blunder by the Government. Even the first case in India were the students from Kerala who flew from China. Infact there is no one transmitting the virus in India it is only passenger's from overseas effected by the corona virus.
