Out of these, 23 cases have been reported from Ahmedabad city alone. Our correspondent reports that this is the highest one-day tally for the state during the last five months.
According to the medical experts, the hospitalization and mortality among the new cases are very low. However, the recent increase in new cases should be a cause of concern. Meanwhile, efforts are being made to reach-out to the people who are resisting the vaccination.
