An Indian student, who had come back from China a month back, has been admitted to a hospital here on suspicion of coronavirus.

The student, Tarzan Kumar, has been admitted in the isolation ward at Anugrah Narayan Magadh Medical College Hospital in Gaya.

Speaking about the case, Dr Hemant Kumar said: "He has cold and cough but no fever. We took precautionary measures and his blood and throat samples have been sent for examination. Since he has come from China, we have kept him under supervision in the isolation ward."

"As far as I know, the patient is a student of Chinese language studies and was in China for the same," he added.
