The new 208 cases included 49 from Greater Hyderabad region, 20 from Warangal Urban and 15 from Karimnagar. No infection was detected in Vikarabad, Narayanpet, Kumaram Bheem Asifabad, or Jayashankar Bhupalapally.

The State’s infection tally now stands at 6,63,662.

Two more COVID patients have died, taking the death toll to 3,906.
