With the surfacing of two more positive COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours, the total count in the district has gone up to 116.

The persons infected with the virus include the parents of a 21-year-old student and resident of Sector 77 Mohali. The 21-year-old student was tested positive on Saturday.

Civil Surgeon Dr Manjit Singh said the reports of the samples of the family members of the 21-year-old student came positive on Monday. The members, whose samples were taken, were asymptomatic.

He said the student had reported at a flu clinic on May 28, after which his samples were taken, and he was confirmed positive on May 30. All contacts have been isolated at COVID Care Centre at Gian Sagar Hospital, Banur, he added.

Dr Singh said they were trying to ascertain their other contacts so that early detection could lead us to quarantine all such contacts before it spreads. The source of infection to the student was also being traced, he added.

With this, the total toll reached to 116 cases with 11 active cases in the district.

Civil Surgeon said they had already issued a note of caution when the district became COVID-19 free on May 21 that the threat of COVID-19 was still there. He said the same came true as, after five days of being declared COVID-free district, a positive patient re-appeared in Mohali on May 26.

He said to date, a total of 116 COVID-19 patients had been reported in the district, of which 102 had been cured and discharged with three deaths reported.
