All the 'high-risk contacts' of the pizza delivery boy in South Delhi, who had tested positive for Coronavirus last week, have tested negative for the virus, the administration said on Monday.

The 19-year-old pizza delivery agent had tested positive for the virus on April 14, prompting authorities to put 72 families he delivered pizza under home quarantine.

Of those 72 families, all the 16 'high-risk contacts' have tested negative for the virus.

"All 16 high-risk contacts of pizza delivery boy have tested negative. They are colleagues of the pizza delivery agent who was infected with coronavirus recently,” south Delhi District Magistrate B M Mishra said.

Mishra said the district administration has not conducted COVID-19 test on members of 72 families as they have not shown any symptoms of the infection so far.

The delivery agent was feeling unwell for some time and had a persistent cough since the third week of March. Later, he approached a hospital where he tested positive for the disease.

So far, Delhi has recorded more than 2,000 coronavirus cases with 45 deaths.
