The Punjab Police have set up 20 more quarantine centres for their personnel in the past one week, taking the total number of such centres to 78.

Director General of Police (DGP) Dinkar Gupta said of the 16 Covid-positive cops in hospitals as on May 14, eight were discharged on Sunday.

An analysis of quarantined police personnel and those who tested positive has brought out 16 cops had to undergo quarantine as they were primary contacts of police officials who contracted the virus, while 150 cops were primary contacts of accused who were brought for interrogation and had tested positive.

Another 118 cops had to be quarantined as they were on duty to bring back pilgrims from Hazur Sahib, workers from Jaisalmer (Rajasthan) and students from Kota (Rajasthan). Some of them traveled to Jammu and Kashmir to drop stranded children and labour. — TNS
