The number of COVID-19 active positive cases in Meghalaya has steadily reduced with another patient recovering on Wednesday taking the recovered cases to 42 as of now. Health and Family Welfare Minister, A. L. Hek informed that with the latest recovery, the State now has three active cases.
The State has so far recorded 46 positive cases, including the death of one person due to the virus on April 15 last.  Hek informed that the person who recovered from viral infection on Wednesday was from West Garo Hills district. Of the three active cases, two are in the South West Garo Hills district and one is an Army man under treatment in the Military Hospital, Shillong. 
Director of Health Services, Dr Aman War said contact tracing of the person working in the State Bank of India, Khanapara Branch, who tested positive for the virus is being carried out by both the authorities in Assam and the Ri-Bhoi district administration. Though the bank is in Meghalaya, the person was found positive in Assam, hence it was not recorded in the list of cases in the State.
