Imphal, Apr 02: A man who attended the religious congregation at Tablighi Jamaat Markaz in Delhi's Nizamuddin West last month tested positive for COVID-19 in Manipur, taking the total number of coronavirus cases in the state to two, Chief Minister N Biren Singh said on Thursday.

He said the development was "very sad and very serious" for a small state like Manipur. The state-level control room on COVID-19 said ten people returned to Manipur after attending the religious congregation in Nizamuddin and of them, eight have tested negative.
