Ladakh: Schools will remain close in Ladakh’s leh from November 15 till further orders after the union territory saw increase in Covid 19 cases with mostly delta plus variant, informed Chief Medical Officer of Leh.

CMO, Leh, Dr Motup Dorje said, “The cases of Covid have increased in the last 2 weeks. Every day we are seeing 25-30 new cases. At present there are 196 cases in the district.”

Dorje further informed that almost 70 per cent of the fresh cases are detected to be Delta Plus variant of the virus which is believed to be highly contagious.

“A big reason behind the rise in the cases is that we have forgotten the COVID appropriate behaviours. People have left wearing masks, big social gatherings are taking place where no COVID appropriate behaviours are followed. I feel the cases have risen because of these reasons,” he added.

The CMO further appealed to the people to isolate themselves upon developing any COVID symptoms and requested them to inform the nearest health
