Dehradun, 20 Jul: Once again the cases of Corona infection have started increasing rapidly in the state of Uttarakhand. In the past 24 hours, 189 new Corona cases have been reported in Uttarakhand. It is after a while that Corona cases are seen surging in the state. While 189 fresh cases were reported in the state, against this recovery of only 100 patients is reported over the past 24 hours.
As usual, Dehradun reported the highest number of cases at 113, with Nainital reporting 40 cases and Haridwar, which is currently witnessing heavy footfall of Kanwar Yatris, reporting just 16 cases. Two deaths were also reported in the past 24 hours due to Corona in the state. Both were reported by AIIMS in Rishikesh. Yesterday, too, the state had reported 162 fresh cases of Corona.
What is surprising and a matter of possible concern is the fact that in the midst of the Char Dham Yatra, the hill districts are not conducting enough tests and continue to report a handful of cases. In case the Corona cases continue to surge over the next few days, the state government may have to take some important decisions and bring some restrictions in force to check the spread. With 189 new corona infection cases in the state, the total number of active cases has increased to 750 now.
