Of these, 288 travellers were from Maharashtra and 82 of them with symptoms such as fever were put in various isolation facilities across the state.

"Eighty samples sent by the state were found negative as per the reports of National Institute of Virology, Pune," said a state government official. 

Meanwhile, the Mumbai Coastal Road project, which is one of the most ambitious transport projects in the city has also been affected due to the outbreak. Even prior to the inception of its construction work, the current Coronavirus scare has affected the plan as the team is dependent on the equipment and manpower from the respective country for the 9.8km tunnelling. 

As per plans, the schedule of Girgaum Chowpatty to Malabar Hill tunnelling was expected to begin from May 2020, and the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) for the same was to be imported from Shanghai (China).

The equipment was expected to leave China on March 1, 2020, and reach Mumbai by April, as the clearance process takes a month approximately. But experts have been denied the visa due to the outbreak.
