Dehradun, 8 Apr: Along with the rest of the country, Uttarakhand is also witnessing a fresh surge in the number of fresh Covid positive cases. According to the Health Bulletin issued today by the State Health Directorate, 35 fresh Covid Positive cases have been recorded in the past 24 hours in Uttarakhand. As has been the trend generally since the beginning of the pandemic, Dehradun continues to lead with 17 cases in past 24 hours. In the fresh surge, so far 53 was the maximum number of fresh cases recorded in course of a single day two days ago in the state so far, with Chamoli recording the highest number .
While Dehradun tops the chart with 17 cases in past 24 hours, Almora with 6 cases was in the second position as far as fresh cases are concerned. Surprisingly, Haridwar despite receiving huge number of visitors from across the country everyday recorded only 5 fresh cases in past 24 hours. Clearly, the testing in Haridwar and random screening of the pilgrims needs to be upscaled. While Dehradun has tested 252 samples in past 24 hours, Haridwar has tested only 79 samples in past 24 hours. Chamoli recorded 3 fresh cases of Corona in past 24 hours. Champawat recorded 2 cases while Nainital recorded just one case today.
In all, 535 samples were collected and submitted for testing today across the state, with more than half being sent from Dehradun.  No death was recorded due to Corona in the state during past 24 hours.
