Chandigarh, September 8
Chandigarh recorded 377 new COVID-19 cases in a span of 24 hours--- reported a new single-day high for the union territory---an administration-issued medical bulletin showed on Tuesday evening.

Chandigarh also reported one death---a 72-year-old woman from Hallomajra who died at Government Medical College and Hospital in Sector 32 on Tuesday. The bulletin says she died of "complex cardiorespiratory complications" that the virus caused.

Chandigarh's cases have been spiralling all of this month---the UT has been recorded over 200 cases each day since September 1, and has already recorded 2, 026 new coronavirus cases and 19 deaths since then. More than a quarter of Chandigarh's cases are still active.

The development would also mean that cases on in the tricity---Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula---would hit a record single-day high of 714 for the first time.
