Of the five cases, one is a 19-year-old boy who returned from Nashik while the four others came from Pune to Sakoli here.

The teen had travelled in a truck and had entered the district without a valid e-pass.

"The boy's contacts in the truck are being traced," he added.

The district's first COVID-19 patient was 45-year-old woman who tested positive on April 27.
