After a spike in Covid-19 cases, the past two days witnessed a decline in the spread. With 31 fresh cases reported today, the state count has reached 1,762. With one death in Hoshiarpur and a returnee from Nanded succumbing to the virus in Ludhiana, the total toll has reached 31. It is the first death among over 4,000 pilgrims who returned from Nanded last month.

As per the media bulletin, Jalandhar topped the chart with 17 cases followed by Fatehgarh Sahib with five cases, Ropar four, Pathankot two and one each in Patiala, Kapurthala and Hoshiarpur.

In Ludhiana, a patient died today. The 59-year-old belonged to Manuke village and tested positive after returning from Takht Shri Hazur Sahib, Nanded. He came back on April 30 and was admitted at the Civil Hospital, Ludhiana. He was symptomatic and was doing fine but today morning, he complained of discomfort and passed away after a few hours. The death toll of Ludhiana has now reached six.

In Jalandhar, with 17 positive cases, the tally has reached 175. The cases reported today include eight pilgrims from Nanded, three contacts of a previous positive case and one new case. A Jalandhar native, who tested positive at Mansa today, is also reportedly a pilgrim. The new case is a 50-year-old woman from New Gobind Nagar. Meanwhile, a 24-year-old woman from Athaula village also tested positive.

In Ropar, four people, including a policeman, tested positive. The cop, along with his six colleagues, accompanied 165 residents of Jammu and Kashmir who were sent to their home last week by the district administration.

The first local case of Covid-19 was detected in Bathinda on Friday. A 70-year-old woman, who sells vegetables, tested positive. The worrying fact in this case is that the source of the infection is untraced.
