Patiala, July 12
Nearly 56 per cent of the total coronavirus cases in Patiala have been reported in the last 11 days and experts attribute the surge to lack of cooperation and concealing of travel histories.
Of total 553 cases of coronavirus in the district, 312 were reported in July month only.
It has been learned that people are not following social distancing norms in the micro-containment-areas which has led to a spike in the number of coronavirus cases.
The caseload of COVID-19 in the district continues to rise because people are not cooperating, say experts.
With people hiding travel history and violating social distancing norms, Patiala is inching towards becoming a hotspot of the corona.
Worryingly, the majority of the cases are being reported from the micro containment areas.
Most of the cases were reported from containment zone Top Khana Mor.
Patiala Civil Surgeon Dr Harish Malhotra said, “There is no let-up in the cases in the containment areas. People should realise the gravity of the corona crisis and should follow government guidelines to stem the spread of the virus.”
He added that hiding of the travel history by the people was one of the main reasons that caused the spike in the corona crises. He said, “People are still hiding their travel history. I again request people to report to the health department.”
