              Thiruvananthapuram/ New Delhi:

              India's third case of coronavirus was reported in Kerala this morning after the southern state reported country's first two cases of the infectious diseases, which has killed over 350 people in China, in the last four days. All three patients are students who returned from China's Wuhan city, the epicentre of the outbreak, last month.
              The coronavirus outbreak, which originated in China and spread to more than 20 countries across the world in the last few weeks, has been declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organisation.

The health officials led by district medical officials are tracking surveillance efforts. Contract tracing for confirmed cases is underway," she added.

              All three coronavirus cases have been reported in different parts of the state. While Kasaragod district is in north Kerala, the first case was reported on January 30 in central Kerala's Thrissur. On Sunday, the central government reported second case of the infectious disease in southern part of the state - Alappuzha.

              India's third case of coronavirus has been reported in Kerala after the southern state reported country's first two cases of the infectious diseases, which has killed over 350 people in China, in the last four days.
