She was then taken to the city’s Capital Hospital, just over 1.5km from the airport.

He was referred to the isolation ward of SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack, along with another person who was accompanying her, Dr Bulu Maharana, emergency officer of the hospital, reported.

The couple are believed to be a man and a woman.

“We have lodged a case with Mangalabag police station,” he said.
