Udupi, Mar 25: G Jagadeesha, deputy commissioner (DC) of the district gave information on the coronavirus positive case that was detected in the district and said, “In the primary investigation the concerned person has tested positive for coronavirus. I have spoken to the nodal officer of the state in this regard. We will give official information only after the receipt of the final report.

“We have received information that the infected person had come to Mangaluru international airport from Dubai. I have spoken to DC of Dakshina Kannada also in this regard. The family members of this person does not live with him. Also the infected person was in home quarantine only. He had gone to the district hospital by driving his car himself. So there is very remote possibility that more people might have come in his contact.

“We will also get the information about people who have interacted with this person as well as that of the co-passengers who travelled with him in the flight from Dubai to Mangaluru. Once confirmed, the infected person will be transferred to Manipal hospital. As many as 10 people can be accomodated there.

“If more space is required to accommodate coronavirus positive patients, instructions are given to use Dr T M A Pai hospital in the city also. There is no need for public to feel anxious but at the same time every citizen has to follow government orders,” said the DC.

    A letter from Italy,
    peace for all,
    We live in Italy - Milan,
    I'm going to share with you and explain to you, "How is life here in Milan" during these difficult
    days and how do I think you should learn from the mistakes and their consequences that we live here.

    We are currently in quarantine. We don't take to the streets, the police are in constant motion and arrest anyone outside his home.
    Everything is closed! ... business, malls, stores, all streets without movement.
    Italy, the country of living life, is transformed from one moment to the next as if it were a dark country of war.
    People are confused, sad, anxious and helpless, and often do not understand how this reality was imposed on
    them and when this whole nightmare will end.

    The big mistake was that at the start of the first hit people continued to lead their lives as usual and took
    to the streets for work, entertainment and feeling like a vacation period, so gatherings with friends and banquets abound.
    Everyone was wrong and so were you!

    I beg you, be careful, this is neither a laugh nor a joke.
    Protect your loved ones, your parents, and your grandparents! The disease is dangerous for them.
    About 200 people die here every day, not because medicine in Milan is not good (it's one of the best in the world),
    but rather because there are no places for everyone!
    Doctors choose who will die!

    This is only because of the silliness of the citizens at the beginning, who decided
    to continue their lives as usual, regardless of the new situation!

    Please, learn from the mistakes, we are a small country that could end up with a great tragedy.
    Listen well now ,,,
    Don't go out into crowded places.
    Try not to eat in public places.
    Stay longer at home during this time!

    In Italy, the entire country is isolated, meaning 60 million people in quarantine !!

    This would have been prevented if people had heard the instructions from the beginning.
