TTD closed down after an emergency meeting
As reported by senior journalist Uma Sudhir, "The decision was taken after one devotee from Maharashtra took ill with fever, cough, cold, inside the Tirumala temple and had to be shifted to a hospital; the patient's sample was sent for Coronavirus testing. He was travelling with a group of 100 people visiting temples across the country."
The news has come as a shock for officials and authorities. They now have to work on a war footing to contain the spread and do contact-tracing.
