One more person tested positive for COVID-19 in Meghalaya, taking the total number of cases in the State to 12, Chief Minister Conrad Sangma said.
 “One of the family friend of the positive patient has also been tested positive. The person is already in quarantine centre,” Sangma stated in his twitter handle.
Meghalaya recorded the first COVID-19 positive case on April 13, that of Dr. John L. Sailo Ryntathiang, the Director of the Bethany hospital, which is now declared as COVID-19 hotspot in this state capital.
In less than 48-hours, Dr. Sailo died in his hospital which he established three decades ago.
Out of the ten COVID-19 patients, two are domestic helpers and eight are family members of Dr. Sailo.
However, the Chief Minister did not specify whether the latest person infected with COVID-19 is a family friend of the deceased Dr. Sailo or two of his helpers. Earlier, during his regular briefing on Monday evening, Sangma said, “ Of 838 samples tested for COVID-19 in the state so far, 714 yielded negative results and results of 113 were awaited.”
He said the ten positive patients were quarantined and are stable as of now.
