MAY 02, 2020
Punjab received a major setback on the early morning of May 2 as the state which was on the vague for a speedy containment and recovery of the deadly Covid-19 disease jumped with over 400 cases in a single day.
Around 750 pilgrims who were stranded in the Nanded City of Maharashtra, where Hazur Sahib Nanded, one of the five takHTs of the Sikh Community is located, returned to Punjab on May 1 where they were tested for the virus. 351 people tested positive and are quarantined near the border. The others are also kept in isolation for the next 14 days.

"The coming days will see a huge spike in a number of positive cases," said the Punjab Health Minister.
Nanded City, which had only 6 positive cases and one of the green zones in Maharashtra, now has 26 cases and is declared as a new red zone by the State Government.
