Mohali, May 28

An NRI, who had returned from the US on May 20, and three of the eight domestic passengers who had arrived at the Chandigarh international airport on May 25, have tested positive for Covid-19, taking the total count of Mohali to 110.

Of the eight domestic passengers, seven had arrived from Mumbai, whereas one had come from Delhi. A total of 133 samples of both Mumbai and Delhi flight passengers had been collected. Meanwhile, all air passengers, who had come from Bengaluru, tested negative for the virus.

The Civil Surgeon, Dr Manjit Singh, said the NRI was in quarantine at a hotel in Dera Bassi since his arrival. He had been shifted to a private hospital for treatment.

He said the three domestic passengers, who had tested positive, were a woman from Zirakpur and two men from Phase I and Sector 67. They were home-quarantined and had now been shifted to the Covid care centre at Gian Sagar Hospital near Banur.

Dr Manjit Singh said five other domestic passengers — two from Ludhiana and one each from Patiala, Barnala and Jalandhar — had also tested positive for the virus. He said health officials of the districts concerned had been informed to take further steps in this regard.
