As many as 20 officials of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) were on Thursday asked to go into isolation after a young trainee was found to be COVID positive in Thiruvananthapuram.

Having found out the trainee had visited a few offices at his unit, the Indian space agency has also asked those who travelled along with him in the official vehicle and others who may come in contact with him to come forward and inform the department concerned.

The trainee was unwell since late June and his test result came on Thursday.
