The UT administration in Leh on Saturday said they have two more patients who have tested positive for Covid19.
An official said that a new case was reported from Bogdang village in Nubra area of Leh district, and the other from Sankoo in Kargil district.
With the two additional patients, the overall tally of Covid-19 positive cases in the desert region have gone up to 20. So far, officials said 16 of them have recovered. Now the region that reported the prevalence of the disease first in erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state, has only four active cases.
