Though 1,864 people have been recuperated, the city continues to be in an unfavorable position with respect to its battle with the global pandemic.

The District administration has pinned increased in rapid testing as the reason of the growing number of cases. The negligence of the people and callousness in following the safety norms are also being held responsible for the quick escalation and transmission of the coronavirus in Lucknow. The Administration has imposed weekend lockdowns, declared large containment zones in areas reporting maximum cases, increased the number of L1 Covid care centres in the city, set up covid help desks to spread awareness during a pandemic, these systems, however, did not translate into desired results and Lucknow is the new hub of infection and transmission in the State.

About 19 cases were reported on Thursday in the Hazratganj branch of a nationalised bank, KGMU's microbiology department employee and a woman in the SPM Hospital's emergency ward were also tested positive.
