The number of Covid cases in Haryana touched 142 on Tuesday, with 46 fresh cases being reported. There is a jump of 47.9% in the last 24 hours.
The fresh cases were reported from Nuh (23), Faridabad (13), Palwal (3), Gurugram (2), Sonepat (2), Ambala (2) and Jind (1). Nuh leads among districts, with 37 cases, followed by 29 in Palwal and 27 in Faridabad.
Health Minister Anil Vij maintained that the spike in Covid cases was due to many Tablighi Jamaat members testing positive for the disease. “Tablighi Jamaat members constitute a sizeable chunk of the total active cases in the state. A majority of those who entered the state before the lockdown have been traced to Nuh district,” he said.
