Bhubaneswar: Three more persons tested corona positive on Wednesday, taking the affected tally in Odisha to 122.
What’s worrisome is the fact that these new cases have been detected in three districts – Keonjhar, Jharsuguda and Deogarh, which had remained unaffected by the disease.
The I & PR Department in a tweet identified them as a 60-year-old man from Panchapalli in Keonjhar, a 34-year-old man from Basudevpur in Deogarh and a 18-year-old girl from Brajrajnagar in Jharsuguda.
