Chandigarh, October 7

There seems to be some respite from the Covid onslaught in the past week. The state reported 1,283 cases today taking the total to 1,37,398. The death tally reached 1,528 with 19 more deaths.

"From what we have observed elsewhere, it should stabilise around 1,000 cases or less for about one month.

As more and more sectors open up, there will be temporary spurts. If we display Covid-appropriate behaviour of wearing masks, maintaining physical distance, observing hand hygiene and generally exercise restraint in social gatherings during the festival season, the declining trend will stabilise. Otherwise, we will have to be prepared for a second surge," said Rajeev Arora, Additional Chief Secretary (Health).

Gurugram reported a maximum of 293 cases followed by Faridabad (178), Rohtak (80), Jind (73) and Hisar (65).

Panchkula reported a maximum of five deaths followed by Hisar (3), Faridabad, Bhiwani and Kurukshetra and Yamunanagar (2 each) and Gurugram, Palwal and Nuh (1 each).
