Indore: A sudden surge in Covid-19 cases has sent city officials into a tizzy once again as nine patients tested positive on Sunday. However, it was a relief for the citizens as no patient out of those nine belonged to Indore.

“Five out of nine were from Mhow, while one was from Eicher Square, in Pithampur. Three patients are admitted to MRTB Hospital in Indore, but they belong to Khandwa. Earlier, they were found positive in rapid tests and were referred from Khandwa to Indore. Later, they were found positive in the RTPCR test, as well,” health officials said.
