Aizawl, Jun 24 (PTI) Three more persons, including two

women, have tested positive for COVID-19 in Mizoram, taking

the state's tally to 145, an official said on Wednesday.

Of the three cases, two were reported from Aizwal

district and one from Lunglei, he said.

A total of 647 samples were tested at Zoram Medical

College (ZMC) and Lunglei civil hospital on Tuesday, and three

were found positive for the disease, Dr Pachuau Lalmalsawma,

spokesperson of the health department on COVID-19, said.

"Of the fresh cases, two had recently come from Delhi

and were in institutional quarantine facilities, while a woman

was found to have contracted the disease through contact with

her father who had tested positive for coronavirus on June

13," he said.

Pachuau, who is also the state nodal officer of the

Integrated Disease Surveillance Programme (IDSP), said there

is nothing to panic as the woman was placed under home

quarantine before she tested positive for the virus.

She was admitted to ZMC on Wednesday morning,

Lalmalsawma said.

Mizoram currently has 126 active cases, while 19 have

recovered from the infection.

Altogether 11,964 people have so far returned to

Mizoram from different parts of the country and abroad in the

wake of the lockdown, another official said.

"We expect that 1,155 more people will come back soon

and the number of returnees could increase as stranded people

continue to register their names with the state government,"

he added. PTI COR
