There were 13,217 active patients in the district on Sunday. Those who lost their lives today include 10 men and 10 women who belonged to urban and rural parts of the district.
Meanwhile, coming forward for extending a helping hand to the administration, a local NGO, Nishkam Ration Sewa, on Sunday handed over five oxygen concentrators and personal protective equipment (PPE) kits to municipal councillor Mamta Ashu in a Covid care centre, established at Government Meritorious School, here.
Welcoming the initiative, the councillor said it was a service of humanity as in this war against the pandemic, contribution by every individual was valuable. “We will win the battle against the virus with the active support and cooperation of people of Ludhiana,” she said.
She said these oxygen concentrators and PPE Kits were of immense help for patients and frontline staff deployed on duty at the Covid care centre. The oxygen concentrators would reduce dependency on oxygen cylinders.
