AIZAWL, June 24 - Three more persons, including a woman without travel history, have tested positive for COVID-19, while three patients were cured and discharged from hospitals in Mizoram on Wednesday.
The State�s COVID-19 tally now stands at 145.
A statement issued by the Department of Information and Public Relations this morning said three more positive cases, including two women, were reported in the State, while 617 samples tested negative in the last 24 hours.
Of the three new cases, two were reported in Aizawl district and one in Lunglei, it said.
According to Dr Pachuau Lalmalsawma, spokesperson for COVID-19, one of the new cases was a woman with no travel history.
�The woman had contracted the disease from her father, who tested positive on June 13,� he said.
Her father had served as the conductor of a bus that ferried returnees from Bairabi to different districts of Mizoram. Earlier, it was reported that none of his family members and close contacts had tested positive.
Pachuau, however, assured that there is no reason to panic as the woman had been under home quarantine before she tested positive.
Later in the afternoon, the DIPR tweeted that four more COVID-19 patients from Champhai district were discharged from the Dedicated COVID Health Centre�s recovery ward today.
With this, Mizoram currently has 122 active and 23 recovered cases.
