Coronavirus: First Case Detected In ‘Other’ Kashmir

SRINAGAR: Within 24 less than a day after a Coronavirus case was detected in Srinagar, the other Kashmir across the Line of Control has also made its beginning. One case was reported in Mirpur, Pakistani media outlet Business Recorder reported.

“The patient is a 45-year-old man who arrived in Mirpur from the Taftan border three days ago,” the report said. “He is from Mirpur Palandri and had travelled to Iran. He arrived in Kashmir and was immediately isolated at a hospital in Mirpur city along with eight other travellers. They were all tested and his was the only one to come back positive.”

This essentially indicates that the Cornovirus is now almost everywhere in the region – Jammu, Ladakh, and the part of Kashmir that is under the administration on Pakistan. Mirpur is closer to Poonch-Rajouri belt.
