India plans to monitor major airports after pneumonia breaks out in China

India at major airports is likely to monitor symptoms of new pneumonia following an outbreak in Wuhan City, initiating international passengers, particularly from China.

China reported the first death after the outbreak on Saturday. A preliminary diagnosis showed that 41 people were suffering from the new pneumonia, the PTI news agency said in a statement from the Wuhan City Health Commission.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a new type of coronavirus is the cause of the outbreak in China. Symptoms include fever, cough and chest congestion. In severe cases, this can lead to lung collapse and multi-organ failure.
The Union Ministry of Health met with WHO representatives on Wednesday to monitor the situation. “There has been a meeting with WHO representatives on the subject and the final details of what needs to be done at this stage are being worked out,” said a representative from the Ministry of Health on condition of anonymity.

“As a precaution, airport officials are currently being instructed to step up vigilance,” said the official.
