JAIPUR: Another case of coronavirus was reported earlier on Tuesday in Jaipur. An 85-year-old man, who returned from his Dubai trip, tested positive for COVID-19 after he showed the symptoms of the deadly virus. 

Additional Chief Secretary Rohit Kumar Singh said on Tuesday, "We have got the details of the Spicejet flight he took from Dubai to Jaipur and are doing due diligence on that."

He further said, "Earlier, his presumptive (first test) returned positive. But since the first confirmatory test is inconclusive, we repeated the test with fresh sample."
