According to the report received today, Deputy Commissioner Shri Rajesh Singh informed that a total of 10 new Covid-19 cases have been confirmed in Bokaro district. Included in the new cases reported are a 44 year old man from Police line Bokaro, a 48 year old man from Sector 1B, a 50 year old man from Chas, 54 year old man from Sector 4, a 40-year-old man from Sector 5, a 57-year-old man from Star House Colony Sector 5B, a 27-year-old man from Sector 2C, a 31-year-old man from Surrender Apartments, a 25-year-old man from Yaduvanshi Nagar Chas and a 41-year-old from IEL Gomiya.
Increasing the frustation of the district officials is the fact that people do not seem to adhere to wearing masks and are still not following social distancing rules. In spite of regular appeals of the district commissioner, the residents in Bokaro are out on the streets and not remaining in their homes. All of this has contributed to another double digit increase in the number of corona patients in last 24 hours.
