“We did get some preliminary reports earlier; I will just share that with you. For today itself, there are one hundred and eighty samples being processed and of those, going for confirmation which means we are going to confirm by a secondary test as well, thirty. So, for today we have thirty more or less that will go for confirmation there. From where are they? We are not sure yet. I am just told that they are not only from San Pedro.”
