As per the protocol, even if Kanika is tested negative next time in the diagnosis, she will be kept in the self-isolation ward for next 14 days and more tests will be conducted to ensure that the coronavirus symptoms have not returned or are not returning.

The UP Health ministry set up several teams to track people who came in contact with Kanika in those days. So far, no person who met Kanika has been tested positive for the deadly virus.
