Civil Surgeon Dr  Manjit  Singh said authorities were still trying to check if he lived in Delhi or Mohali.

The second case is a 26-year-old man from Nayagaon’s Dasmesh Nagar who tested positive in a routine sampling.

Both have been moved to a COVID Care Centre in Gian Sagar Hospital, the doctor said.

The third case was 29-year-old man who flew back from Hyderabad on Sunday.

Kharar Civil Hospital SMO Tarsem Singh said the patient was a resident of Palm Enclave on Jhungian road. His swab samples were taken from testing at the airport on Sunday.

He has been moved to the hospital in Banur and his residential area has been sealed off, authorities said. 

District authorities say Mohali now has 140 COVID-19 cases, 25 of them active. However, Punjab’s official COVID tally puts that number at 136 with 24 active cases.

The district has three fatalities since coronavirus outbreak in March.
