A man, who had recently flown in from the UK and was tested COVID-19 positive but had escaped from an isolation centre in the national capital and reached Ludhiana in Punjab.

"The UK returnee who tested positive for COVID-19 and escaped isolation center in Delhi, and went to Ludhiana had been sent back to Lok Nayak Hospital in National Capital," Additional Deputy Commissioner of Ludhiana said on Thursday.

"We received a call from Delhi that a man, who returned from the UK, escaped isolation and came to Ludhiana and admitted himself at a private hospital. He was tested Positive for COVID-19 but the strain was not clear. We were asked to send him back to Lok Nayak Hospital, and we had sent him back yesterday (Wednesday)," said Sandeep Kumar, Additional Deputy Commissioner, Ludhiana.
