Officials said the four who tested positive in Gurgaon worked at a factory in Nuh and came in contact with a truck driver who had tested positive. The driver lived in Sohna and tested positive in Alwar, his native place. “After he tested positive, officials at Alwar alerted us. Samples of the four were taken after contact tracing. They all reside in Sohna,” said Dr Jaswant Singh Punia, CMO Gurgaon. In Noida, two new cases came from Achheja village in Greater Noida, where a 35-year-old woman and a 39-year-old man tested positive. A 70-year-old Delhi resident who visited her son in Sector 15 A also tested positive after getting privately tested. In a late evening order by the UP government, Gautam Budh Nagar CMO Dr AP Chaturvedi was replaced by Dr Deepak Johri– the second shunting in two weeks after Dr Anurag Bhargava was replaced. Sources said the replacement came in the wake of a suspected coronavirus patient’s suicide in a Greater Noida isolation ward.
