Panchkula, July 3

A 39-year-old man from Ashiana Complex in Abheypur, Sector 19, was found positive for the novel coronavirus today, taking the district Covid-19 tally to 120.

Civil Surgeon Jasjeet Kaur said they could not trace the source of infection in this case. The man does not have any travel history. “We are investigating from where he got the virus,” she added.

The man is receiving treatment at an isolation ward of the Civil Hospital. Meanwhile, Alchemist Hospital is yet to submit a reply to the show-cause notice issued to it by the Health Department after finding a few shortcomings. As many as three doctors, a staff nurse and three patients admitted at the hospital have been found positive for Covid-19 so far.

“We had received an assessment report with a few rectifications suggested to us. We are acting accordingly,” said Dr PS Mann, operations head at the hospital. —TNS
