In some relief to the city residents, Patiala health department informed that of the 17 total cases since May 14, there were only two cases that had a local source of infection. The rest have been related to interstate travel, said the department.
District epidemiologist Dr Sumeet Singh informed that the situation was becoming better in the district as no major spike was witnessed in the last two weeks. He said, “We have only two cases with local source of infection. However, we have to be extra vigilant about interstate and inter-district travelers. If people follow the guidelines, the situation will remain under control.”
