A 32-year-old banker from Delhi tested positive for Covid-19 in Punjab’s Mohali district on Wednesday. Working in Delhi for the past two years, the man had come to his home town Mohali on May 22. He was admitted to the local civil hospital after he exhibited influenza-like symptoms and was sampled on May 24.
Civil surgeon Dr Manjit Singh said as the patient is a Delhi resident, his case will not be included in the Mohali district count.
“The patient has been shifted to Gian Sagar Hospital in Banur and the Delhi health department has been informed. However, we will be taking samples of his 11 family members with whom he came in contact here. In case their reports turn out to be positive, they will be included in the Mohali count,” he said.
Mohali has recorded 106 Covid-19 cases. With 102 people being discharged and three fatalities, the district has only one active case right now — a Nayagaon woman who tested positive on May 25, two days after delivering a child at Government Multi Specialty Hospital, Sector 16, Chandigarh.
