Chandigarh, October 16

In what can be viewed as a positive sign, the number of recoveries is almost double the number of new Covid cases being reported. Corroborating this, 979 patients have recovered as against 507 fresh cases having been reported today.

Besides, the state has recorded 26 deaths in the past 24 hours.

The number of fresh cases continues to fall, and so does the fatality rate.

The industrial city of Ludhiana has reported maximum number of new cases at 68, and has recorded five more deaths.

Amritsar continues to keep the health authorities on toes, as the district has topped the toll chart with six deaths, while the number of new cases reported is 40. Jalandhar, too, is showing signs of improvement with 54 new cases and three casualties. As many as 60 cases have been reported in Patiala.
