Meghalaya government has not been able to trace the source of COVID19 that had infected and killed the first positive patient, Dr John L Sailo Ryntathiang.
Till Thursday, over 1,100 samples tested for COVID19, out of which 1,000 samples found negative.
While the number of active positive cases remained 11, the virus claimed one in Meghalaya.
“Out of 1109 samples sent for test, 1000 samples have been tested negative and the results of 97 samples are awaited,” chief minister Conrad K Sangma said on Thursday in a health bulletin.
He said that all positive patients are stable.
A total of 24,382 persons have been screened till now with 5,208 in home quarantine and 296 in institutional quarantine.
There are 64,458 PPEs, 5,10,000 3-ply masks, and 65,190 N-95 masks currently available in the state.
The bulletin said 223 primary contacts and 5007 secondary contacts have been traced.
However, it remains a mystery, as the state is yet to find out the carrier of the virus that had infected Dr Sailo, who passed away on April 15.
The family of late Dr Sailo has asked the state government to track down the carrier of the virus as many people continue to suspect that the son-in-law of Dr Sailo is the main carrier of the virus since he had come to Shillong from outside.
But the son-in-law tested negative twice.
