A three-year-old is among two Covid-19 positive cases reported in Telangana on Wednesday, health officials said.

The male child recently returned with his parents from Saudi Arabia. He has been admitted to a hospital where his condition is stated to be stable.

A 43-year-old woman from Hyderabad with no history of international travel has also tested positive. She is the primary contact of a positive case reported earlier.

With these two cases, the number of positive cases in the state has gone up to 40.

As many as 50 persons with suspected symptoms were brought to different hospitals on Wednesday, taking the cumulative number to 813.

In addition to the total lockdown, the state has strengthened surveillance, contact tracing and containment measures against the possible spread of the dreaded disease.

The health department said the containment process has been initiated in places where confirmed cases have been diagnosed.

The department has appealed to the citizens to kindly adhere to the lockdown and stay indoors. "This will enable us to break the chain of transmission and prevent infection," it said.

It has directed that any person who has returned from any foreign country or has been in transit shall be in self-home quarantine for 14 days from the time of arrival in India, irrespective of having any symptoms or not.
