Shimla- In the last 24-hours, Himachal Pradesh has reported 70 fatalities due to coronavirus, according to official data released by the state government. The death toll as of now stands at 2,311. Meanwhile, 2,378 new cases of infection were detected according to official data since Saturday evening till now; this takes the total number of Covid cases in the state to 1,60,240 to date. Out of this, 36,909 are active cases of infection.

The highest number of casualties were reported from Kangra district where 30 patients succumbed to severe symptoms of coronavirus. Out of these 30 deaths, only one patient had hypertension as comorbidity while others had no prior medical conditions, as shown by state data. In the Shimla district, 11 patients were reported dead. 55 out of 70 patients who succumbed to the infection had no comorbidities; while 19 patients were below the age of 50.

Despite consistently rising fatality rate, the state government is struggling to increase testing. On Sunday, the total sampling fell to 10186 from 15461 on Saturday. With low testing, the number of positive cases also went down. This failure would make it difficult to assess the true scale of the spread, which could prove to be fatal for the population of the state. Moreover, the state government hasn’t clarified as to what’s keeping it from boosting daily testing. 

Out of 10,084 people who were sampled for Covid infection on Sunday, 3,188 results remain awaited
