Chandigarh, April 21
With Punjab recording a new high of around 70,000 Covid cases from April 1-20, the state’s caseload this month is expected to breach the 1-lakh mark. The state had earlier logged its highest monthly tally in September last year when around 60,000 cases were reported.
Punjab’s cumulative tally surged to 3,09,316 on Tuesday with 4,970 fresh cases while the death toll climbed to 8,045 as 69 more patients succumbed to the disease, according to a medical bulletin. The state is currently witnessing 4,000 to 5,000 cases daily with an average 1.5 per cent spike over 24 hours.
Though the cases continue to surge, the state’s fatality has fallen to 2.6 per cent from over 3 per cent. The count, however, is still more than double the national death rate of 1.2 per cent.
