The government said on Monday two people in India had tested positive for coronavirus.

One case was detected in New Delhi, while the other was in the southern state of Telangana, the government said in a statement.

The patients had a travel history from Italy and the United Arab Emirates, respectively, the statement said.

Both patients were stable and being closely monitored.

Health Minister Harsh Vardhan says the government is prepared for all screening, testing and containment.

Earlier in India, there were three positive COVID-19 cases reported from Kerala, but all were discharged from the hospital after they recovered from the disease.

More than 2,000 people have been screened at 21 international airports in India in order to contain the disease.

The Centre has evacuated Indians as well as foreign nationals at least thrice from the COVID-19-affected China. Suspected persons were quarantined at the Chhawala and Manesar isolation camps arranged by the Army and the ITBP.
