Chandigarh, November 20

Amid the rising number of active Covid-19 cases in Punjab, 16 persons have succumbed to the disease in the past 24 hours.

Four deaths were reported in Jalandhar, three in Mohali and two each in Bathinda and Mansa. One person succumbed to the contagion each in Ferozepur, Ludhiana, Hoshiarpur and Muktsar.

As many as 819 new cases were reported in the state, with almost 24 per cent of the cases being reported from Mohali alone. Over 63 per cent of the positive cases reported today were from Mohali, Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Amritsar and Patiala.

Though Mohali and Jalandhar have remained hotspots, Ludhiana and Patiala, after having shown signs of recovery in October, have once again started throwing up more numbers. Health experts say the festival rush and unwillingness of people to adhere to the Covid norms — wearing of masks and maintaining social distancing — have led to the spike. They warn the state may see a new wave, more intense than the first one, if people refuse to adhere to the protocol. — TNS
