The UT administration in Leh on Sunday said they have eighteen more patients who have tested positive for Covid19.
“18 new Positive Cases from Chuchot Yokma. Please Stay Home and respect the rule of Social Distancing,” Rigzin Samphal, commissioner secretary health and medical education, Ladakh tweeted.
With the 18 additional patients, the overall tally of Covid-19 positive cases in the desert region have gone up to 41. So far, officials said 17 of them have recovered. Now the region that reported the prevalence of the disease first in erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state, has only 24 active cases.
It is interesting to mention here that Ladakh tops the list of states and UTs in India that have done Covid-19 tests on a large scale.
