New Delhi: A day after a man who had travelled from Vienna to Delhi in an Air India flight was confirmed to have contracted Covid-19 (the disease caused by novel coronavirus), Air India has asked all his fellow travellers to follow guidelines issued by the health ministry for suspected coronavirus cases.

In a tweet, Air India said: "This is for the attention of passengers who flew on AI154 Vienna-Delhi of February 25. One of the passengers has tested positive for coronavirus. Please follow the protocol notified by the Ministry of Health regarding coronavirus."
