Sangrur, July 23

After Malerkotla, the Sangrur administration is contemplating a lockdown in Lehra town after its Subdivisional Magistrate (SDM) put forward a proposal in this regard due to a sharp rise of Covid-19 cases.

Till date, 31 police officials, including two SHOs and a DSP, have tested positive while tracing their hundreds of contacts remains a challenge for the Health Department.

“We have deputed special teams to take samples of contacts of all cops and have put their families in Moonak, Lehra, Sunam and other areas under quarantine. Presently, we are collecting 40-50 samples,” said Dr Suraj Sharma, incharge of a Lehra hospital.
