Uttarakhand had reported 814 cases of Covid-19 on Friday.

On the sudden jump in Covid cases, social activist Anoop Nautiyal said, “I appeal to Govt of #Uttarakhand and Health Dept to immediately increase the no. of Covid tests.”

“We are only doing 15,000 odd tests on a daily basis. This is far lower than the target of 25,000 that was set by the authorities. In fact, this target needs revision after the big spike in cases in state,” he said.
