The total number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Gujarat on Monday increased to 146 after 18 fresh cases of the virus were reported from the state in the last 24-hour. One more death was reported from Vadodara till 8 pm on Monday that took the death toll due to the virus in Gujarat to 12.

Of the 18 fresh cases, Ahmedabad alone reported 11 cases. Vadodara reported two cases, and Mehsana and Patan reported one case each. Surat reported three cases of the virus till 8 pm on Monday. With the addition of the fresh cases, Ahmedabad is at the top of the list with 64 positive cases, followed by Surat with 19 cases.

According to the state health department, 33 persons who have travelled to the state from abroad have tested positive for coronavirus, whereas 26 other positive cases have a history of inter-state travel. Apart from these, there are 85 cases of local transmission out of the total 144 cases—a major cause of concern for the health authorities as it is difficult to trace people who have come in contact with them.

The state government has also informed that out of the total tally, two people are on ventilators and are in a critical condition, whereas 110 people under active treatment are stable. Twenty-one persons who have tested negative for coronavirus twice within a span of 24-hours have been discharged after successful treatment till  10 am on Monday.

There is also a reduction in the number of people under quarantine. The government informed that 14,054 people are under quarantine as of Monday and 418 FIRs have been registered for violation of the quarantine protocols.
