The total number of coronavirus cases in Gujarat has risen to 241 with 55 new cases being found in the last 12 hours, an official said on Thursday. The sudden spike in the number of new cases is due to the intensive surveillance in areas which have been declared as 'hotspots' in Ahmedabad and other major cities of Gujarat, principal secretary (health) Jayanti Ravi said.

Out of the 55 new cases, 50 are from Ahmedabad, two from Surat, and one each from Dahod, Anand and Chhotaudepur district, she said. Ahmedabad has so far reported 133 cases out of the total 241. PTI
