The total number of persons found Covid-19 positive on Mondat is five. The total number of positive cases has increased to 83 and the number of active cases to 72. The phased reopening of restrictions (Unlock-I), while boosting the general economy will also necessitate non-medical measures like social distancing, wearing of face mask and hand hygiene. These are very effective and proven methods of prevention. These are also considered a part of medical modernity. An appeal is made to the citizens to adopt and practice these social/ non-medical measures, it added.
