New Delhi, April 12

The Covid situation in Punjab appears to be slowly stabilising with the state managing to stay off the top 10 highest-burden segment for the fourth consecutive day today. Punjab, however, remains among the top 10 states with the highest share of daily fatalities.

Of the 1,68,912 new cases over the last 24 hours, 10 states contributed 83.02 per cent. These are Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, MP, Gujarat and Rajasthan. Maharashtra reported the highest daily new cases at 63,294, followed by Uttar Pradesh (15,276) and Delhi (10,774).

Punjab is working with central teams to contain the surge, with sources saying gaps in test-and-track strategy were being plugged. Of the 904 deaths reported in the last 24 hours, Punjab saw 59, Maharashtra 349 and Chhattisgarh 122. — TNS
