Bhopal, March 26 (IANS) A 47-year-old man admitted to a hospital in Madhya Pradesh's Indore after being suspected of coronavirus, died on Thursday morning, an official said.

The man has no travel history and his test reports are awaited, the official said.

Earlier treated at the Ujjain civil hospital, he was admitted to the Indore hospital on Wednesday with symptoms of breathlessness, the official said.

The state reported its first coronavirus death on Wednesday after a 65-year-old woman from Ujjain who had tested positive died.

At present, 19 patients are admitted to different hospitals of the state.

Among the latest five new cases found positive in Indore, two are women and three men from different localities of the city, a spokesman of the Government Medical College said.

Curfew has been enforced in Indore and Ujjain since the cases were reported on Wednesday. Earlier, six positive coronavirus cases in Jabalpur and two in Bhopal were detected, sources said.

Most of the 52 districts in the state are under lock down.

No positive case was found in Chhatarpur but the patient found in Gwalior had a travel history of Khajuraho (in Chhatarpur). District authorities therefore clamped curfew in Rajnagar and Khajuraho towns of Chhatarpur.
