"Ten tests were received in Udhampur. Out of these, four have turned out positive. They are known contacts of a woman who died of coronavirus at GMC Jammu," District Magistrate, Udhampur, Piyush Singla told PTI.

The positive cases included two grand-daughters, daughter-in-law and a neighbour of the deceased woman, he said.

The woman's son is a PSO of a retired police officer, he said.

Authorities have declared Tikri village in Udhampur a red zone and aggressive contact tracing of positive cases is being done by health teams, officials said.
