Jeremy Gan, who coaches the Malaysian team at the ongoing World Badminton Championship here, was quarantined at the Andhra Pradesh Chest Hospital Tuesday.
Gan's tests are negative and he is stable, hospital superintendent S.V. Prasad told IANS.
Earlier, Badminton World Federation (BWF) chief operating officer Thomas Lund said Gan had no fever in the last 36 hours. "It is a good indication. His condition is stable."
The coach had complained of sore throat and fever Monday evening. His sickness had led to a scare at the world championship.
