Srinagar: District Development Commissioner, Shahid Choudhary, on Saturday said that there was no room to lower the guard despite Srinagar reporting no fresh case of COVID-19.
“We’ve always said that numbers shouldn’t worry us. First time, Srinagar has registered zero case today,” he said. “This shouldn’t thrill us. No lowering of guard till we are declared Covid free.”
Earlier in the day, seventeen more patients tested positive for COVID-19 in Jammu and Kashmir; none were from Srinagar.
In Srinagar, fourteen areas have been declared as red zones where all entry and exit points have been sealed. Among the total positive cases in J-K, four have died in J-K while six are said to have recovered from the infection.
