Patiala police, with the help of the Health Department, have conducted corona tests on 11,341 people found roaming without masks.

The violators were screened under a campaign launched on March 19 to control the spread of coronavirus in Patiala.

Of the 11,341 violators, 48 were found to be corona positive, informed SSP Vikram Jeet Duggal, adding that the positive cases were being monitored separately by the Health Department.

The SSP further said instructions had been issued to the Patiala police to screen maximum people caught without face masks.

“To curb the spread of coronavirus, the Patiala police have been setting up corona test camps in the city and in all sub-divisions to create awareness among the people,” said Duggal.

The officer appealed to all the citizens to take maximum precautions and to extend full cooperation to the Police and Health Departments for the prevention of the disease.
