Covid-19 has caused 16 deaths in the state till date. Although the mortality rate in the state as well as the recovery rate are better than the national average, the number of new infections has been on the rise steadily.

In Jamshedpur, there has been an upward trend in the number of new infections.

Till a few days back most of the new cases related to those who have had a travel history. But now more and more patients with no travel history are being found positive.

And this is a worrying trend which has made the district administration sit up and take notice.
