A total of 202 patients were discharged in the day, including 175 in the city and 27 in rural parts, taking the number of recoveries to 30,126, the department said in a release.
Meanwhile, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) on Sunday said it collected a fine of over Rs 5.5 crore so far from violators, including citizens and commercial establishments, of COVID-19 norms.
The civic bodyhas expressed concerns over a large section of people violating COVID-19 guidelines related to maintaining social distance and wearing face masks in the city, and released several photographs.
The AMC said such complacency poses risks to the lives of elderly people and those with comorbid conditions, as their family members can catch infection outside if they don't follow norms. PTI KA NSK NSK
