265 new cases, Vij slams Kejri for sealing border

Chandigarh, June 1

With Haryana recording 265 Covid cases today, the highest in a day so far, it crossed Punjab in the total number of cases. Haryana now has 2,356 cases while Punjab has 2,301.

Previously, the maximum cases in a day were recorded on May 29, when 217 patients were confirmed. Today, 64.5 per cent cases were from Gurugram (129), Faridabad (25), Sonepat (13) and Jhajjar (4).

As Delhi closed its borders with Haryana, Health Minister Anil Vij said, “When we closed the borders, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said India was one. But now, they have closed the borders. I would like to say that every state has the right to take a decision for its safety. It is wrong to say that Delhi hospitals are only for residents of the national capital.” Cases were also recorded from Sirsa (28), Rohtak (14), Hisar (13), Kaithal (11), Palwal (11), Bhiwani (5), Fatehabad and Kurukshetra (4 each) and Jind and Nuh (2 each). Seven patients were cured in the past 24 hours, taking the tally of discharged cases to 1,055, with the recovery rate falling from 50.12 per cent to 44.78 per cent in a day. The doubling rate fell from nine days to eight days in the past 24 hours.

A 62-year-old man, who was a cardiac patient, succumbed to Covid in Gurugram, taking the tally of casualties to 21, with a fatality rate of 0.89 per cent.

In Rohtak, five PGIMS staffers, three connected to a local NGO, a woman-son duo in Rithal village, a resident employed at a veterinary hospital in Delhi and a youth working at an automobile unit in Manesar were among the fresh cases.
