All six Patiala cases came from Rajpura, which alone has 42 Covid-19 patients of the total 61 in the district. The chain was started from a 60-year-old woman. All new cases are from one family, including a woman, her two sons and two daughters-in-law, health officials said.

Negligence on the part of some of the patients has led to the spread of the infection in the town. According to health officials, many of them kept socialising with their neighbours, while some travelled to distant places to meet their friends and relatives. The department is tracing the high-risk contacts of the six new patients.

In Jalandhar, three more cases have come to the fore, taking the total number to 66. The district has now surpassed Mohali and has the most number of Covid-19 patients in the state.

A 48-year-old migrant labourer, a Covid suspect, died at a private hospital this morning. The health authorities later confirmed that he died of Covid-19.

The three new cases reported today are all contacts of an employee of a local media house, which had earlier reported a slew of cases. They include his 65-year-old mother, wife and five-year-old son.

A 48-year-old native of Maharashtra died today reportedly due to Covid-19. He was admitted to a private hospital and his sample was tested at a private lab in Amritsar, which confirmed him to be Covid-positive.

The health authorities said it was yet to be confirmed whether he died of the infection. The victim was a resident of Basti Gujan and was working at a leather factory in the city.
