COVID-19: All 26 cases recover in Jammu; can’t declare district infection free yet, says DC

Jammu, Apr 30: All 26 positive cases of COVID-19 which were under treatment in different hospitals, have recovered, an official here said on Thursday.
“There were 26 cases left in the Jammu district, which were being treated and after fresh tests, they all have been tested negative,” said an official.
Meanwhile Deputy Commissioner Jammu Sushma Chauhan here told UNI, “with declaration of all 26 cases negative and their recovery, the district cannot be declared as “COVID free” as in prevailing situation it would be wrong saying so.”

However, a senior police official said that restrictions remain in force amidst lockdown and no relaxation is being given barring those as per MHA guidelines.
