As per Times of India (ToI) report, the man had travelled from Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradesh to Tamil Nadu on April 25. He and three other people had gone to the Satya Sai Baba temple in Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradesh. 

Soon after the news of lockdown extended for the first time till May 3, the men decided to travel back to Tamil Nadu. They reached Krishnigiri border on April 25 when the police officials stationed there questioned them and sent them to a quarantine facility. After the results came, the elderly man tested positive for the virus.

So far, Krishnagiri district was the only place in Tamil Nadu to be notified as a green district by the Centre.

Meanwhile, Krishnagiri Collector Prabhakar said, “The COVID-19 patient was entering Tamil Nadu when our team checked them at the Krishnagiri border checkpost. We immediately isolated the patient and three others who were travelling along with him. We sent the samples of all the four persons for testing; one person alone tested positive. The other three people, though they tested negative, are kept under home quarantine.” 

Yesterday, Tamil Nadu reported 203 confirmed COVID-19 cases, which had taken the tally to 2,526. Out of the 203 cases, 176 patients tested positive in Chennai alone.
