With 11 deaths in the last 24 hours, the toll in the state now stands at 1127. Dr Srinivas Rao, the director of Public Health and Family Welfare said the worst of the pandemic might be over in the state.
A multi-pronged strategy to contain the spread of the virus in the last two months appeared to have worked well, except in three or four districts, leading to a gradual decline of the number of positive cases of the novel coronavirus in the State, he said.
Andhra Pradesh’s COVID-19 tally increased to 6,87,351 as 6,190 more cases were added on Monday, while 35 deaths took the fatalities to 5,780.
