Amritsar, June 1

With nine new cases reported from the district on Monday, the total count of Covid-19 positive cases in the district has increased to 401. The district health authorities said while three patients were suffering from influenza like illness, the remaining six were contacts of positive cases.

With more and more areas reporting coronavirus cases from the district, it seems that the disease has spread its tentacles in all directions. The new localities which reported Covid-19 cases are Ganda Singh Colony, Labour colony, Sarifpura and Katra Moti Ram areas. Areas like Vijay Nagar and Rani ka Bagh have also reported at least 10 cases each.

Earlier, cases were reported from Hathi Gate, Islamabad, Chehharta, Green Avenue, Palm Avenue and Gate Hakeema. While the movement of residents is going on unabated due to relaxations in the lockdown, residents are fearful that cases would further increase. With 84 active cases, 310 recoveries and seven deaths due to the disease, the district has reported the highest number of coronavirus cases in the state.

Meanwhile, the Health Department has transferred Civil Surgeon Dr Jugal Kishore to Fatehgarh Sahib. Fatehgarh Sahib Civil Surgeon Dr NK Aggarwal, who has been appointed the new Civil Surgeon here, is expected to join tomorrow (on Tuesday). The transfer orders came a day after Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu visited here on Sunday. Sidhu had conducted a meeting with Dr Jugal Kishore for 10 minutes his office. Officials of the department stated that transfer was a routine matter.
