Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday recorded the highest single-day spike of 620 fresh Coronavirus infections, taking the total count of cases to 4,087 in 91 days, an official declared.

Reportedly, the official divulged that Kashmir division alone recorded 583 cases, which has been consistently recording the majority of the cases as compared to the Jammu division where 37 more people have tested positive for the virus. 32 among the total count has travel history.

Since the initial cases of COVID-19 on March 9, for the first time, the UT has seen a huge spike of quite 600 cases on a single day. Kashmir recorded the highest single-day Coronavirus cases in Kulgam with 161 people testing positive. Baramulla accounted for 132 fresh cases with Srinagar catching up with 87, Pulwama and Anantnag with 60 and 59 respectively.

Jammu district recorded the highest jump in Jammu with 22 cases.

Two more people have also died thanks to the virus in Kashmir, taking the price within the UT to 41.

“The samples taken from a non-local, who gave up the ghost in Srinagar on Saturday, tested positive for the disease on Sunday. The 38-year-old man, a resident of Kolkata, died of a brain haemorrhage at the SMHS hospital,” medical superintendent of SMHS, Nazir Chaudhary was quoted as saying.

Another patient, a 70-year-old man from Srinagar, died thanks to the virus at Nehru Memorial hospital in Srinagar late on Saturday.

Srinagar deputy commissioner Shahid Choudhary had tweeted: “We should emphasise on precautions publicly rather than triggering panic with numbers. in the latter case, it’s also true that out of 23,589 #Srinagar residents tested thus far only 400 odd are +ve, including but 50% travellers. Let’s encourage everyone to follow precautions.”

Former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah also tweeted: “620 new cases in J&K today & only 32 are returning travellers. this is often an enormous spike in local numbers considering the administration has a number of the toughest restrictions within the country. A little district like Kulgam with a jump of 160 cases is deeply worrisome. what's going wrong?”

Jammu and Kashmir administration on Sunday has categorised nine districts in Red zone, nine in Orange zone and two in the green zone.

BVR Subrahmanyam, Chief Secretary mentioned that Srinagar, Pulwama, Shopian, Anantnag, Kulgam, Budgam, Baramulla, and Kupwara in Kashmir division and Ramban in Jammu division are put in zone districts category.

The Jammu and Kashmir administration declares that religious places would still remain closed through malls, barbershops, hotels and restaurants are being reopened with new guidelines.
