Amritsar, June 2
The district reported only two positive cases here on Tuesday. Both the patients had got themselves tested as they were suffering from influenza-like illness (ILA).
While one patient is a resident of Holi City residential locality, the other is from the Jaura Pipal area. Both the patients did not have any travel or contact history. Both the localities — Holy City locality and Jaura Pipal area — had earlier reported no coronavirus patients.
The spread of the infection to newer areas indicates that the administration’s efforts to contain its spread outside the containment zones have failed. With 403 Covid-19 cases recorded so far, the district at present has 86 active cases admitted to hospitals.
With at least 12, eight and seven active cases, the Vijay Nagar, Rani Ka Bagh and Hathi Gate areas, respectively, have emerged as major hotspots in the city.
The district had on Monday reported nine positive cases — one each from Grace Avenue, Shaheed Udham Singh Nagar and Katra Parja areas, two cases from Katra Moti Ram and three cases from Hathi gate area. The Katras’ and Hathi gate area, which are parts of the old walled city, are densely populated areas with narrow streets. Health officials said the spread of the infection in densely populated and congested areas could cause more trouble for the administration.
