Union Health Ministry on Wednesday expressed concern over the surge of coronavirus cases in Maharashtra and Punjab.

Two states which have shown surge in cases -- Maharashtra and Punjab -- are of grave concern, Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said at a press conference.

Pune, Nagpur, Mumbai, Thane, and Nashik are the worrisome districts in Maharashtra, while Jalandhar, SAS Nagar, Ludhiana, Patiala, and Hoshiarpur are showing massive surge in Punjab. “Punjab is worrisome because new cases are more in comparison to the population,” Bhushan said. Six states cumulatively account for 81.65% of the new cases reported in the past 24 hrs. Maharashtra has reported the highest daily new cases followed by Punjab.
