Speaking to media on Tuesday, Dr Reddy said that the state has been successful in keeping the mortality rate under 1% through a series of measures.
“I appeal to the public to seek immediate medical attention if they develop Covid-like symptoms or breathlessness without waiting for test results,” said Dr Reddy. Analysing cases reported over two periods in August — August 3 to 16 and August 17 to 30— the special chief secretary said districts like Anantapur, Guntur and Krishna witnessed a considerable drop in new cases reported every day in the second fortnight compared to the first, while districts like Nellore, Prakasam and West Godavari recorded higher numbers. “The comparison of the number of deaths during the same two fortnights revealed a significant decline in casualty numbers in Guntur, Vizianagaram and Srikakulam districts,” he said.
