Rajpura, India: A Jalandhar woman who died recently was diagnosed with coronavirus on Sunday, taking Punjab's death tally to 12 out of 167 recorded infections. After reports of a woman from Jalandhar's Kotla Heran village who sources say was aged between 58-60 years showed she had COVID-19, the district's health team made their way to the area. Reports said that after the woman died, 70-80 people had attended the woman's final rites. This takes the district's tally of the number of dead patients with coronavirus to two.

Jalandhar also reported six other coronavirus cases apart from the woman on Sunday, taking the district tally to 22. With this, Jalandhar has surpassed Nawanshahr's total of 19 cases. Mohali and Phagwara also reported new coronavirus cases. Mohali reported two more cases from Dera Bassi's Jawaharpur village---a coronavirus hotspot. Two women who are relatives of people already diagnosed with the infection tested positive on Sunday. The development takes the infection tally in the village alone to 36 and Mohali district to 53. In Phagwara, a student of Lovely Professional University who was staying at the institution's hostel tested positive late on Saturday. The woman, believed to be originally from Mumbai's suburbs, is believed to have travelled nowhere recently and had been staying at the hostel for several months now.

District health authorities have sealed the campus and are conduct thorough health checkups. They are also tracing the people the woman may have come in contact with. Meanwhile, district health authorities in Nawanshahr said reports of three people who had previously been isolated at the district hospital after they tested positive have come back for the second consecutive time. Authorities have declared that they had been treated successfully and will be released soon. The number of people cured in the district now stands at 13, officials said.
