SRINAGAR: The UT administration in Kargil on Saturday said they have two more patients who have tested positive for Covid19.

“Two Iran Returned ( Residents of Kargil) under Institutional Quarantine at #kargil has tested #COVID19 Positive,” Rigzin Samphal, commissioner secretary health and medical education, Ladakh tweeted.

With the two additional patients, the overall tally of Covid-19 positive cases in the desert region have gone up to 46 including 35 in Leh and 11 in Kargil. So far, officials said 43 of them have recovered.

Now the region that reported the prevalence of the disease first in erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state, has only three active cases including two in Kargil and one in Leh.

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.
