 The fact that nearly 40 vegetable venders and shopkeepers have tested positive in the city have left the administration worried. For the first time, a dairy booth operator tested positive. The virus has spread to 31 districts in the state with the highest number of cases reported in Jaipur, Jodhpur, Kota, Ajmer, Tonk, Chittorgarh, Nagaur, Udaipur and Bharatpur. Of the total 108 deaths 59 were reported in Jaipur.

Nearly 300 labourers have been left stranded in Bharatpur on the Rajasthan-Uttar Pradesh border with the UP administration not allowing labourers from other states (except) Bharatpur to enter. The labours from Uttar are being allowed to enter after an ID verification.
