NOWSHERA: Twelve more suspected patients reported positive for the coronavirus, raising the number of confirmed Covid-19 cases to 1,958 in the district on Monday.

Deputy Commissioner Mir Raza Ozgan, District Health Officer Dr Gulman Shah and Dr Yaseen Khan told media that the surge of coronavirus-infected patients continued unabated with the passage of time as people were ignoring the standard operating procedures (SOPs) against the fast-spreading viral infection.
