As per latest reports from the government of Andhra Pradesh, a total of 1,02,460 tests have been performed in the state till now. This is one of the highest tallies in the country.
On the other hand, another Telugu speaking state, Telangana is yet to cross 20,000 tests mark. The total number of tests performed in Telangana stand at 19,278 as on April 29th. The official numbers are yet to be reported though.
The total number of Coronavirus positive cases in Andhra Pradesh are 1463, while the tally stands at 1038, which is lesser when compared to Andhra Pradesh. However, the huge contrast in testing rate is turning a few heads.
The Coronavirus graph has been declining in Telangana for a few days now and that is a very positive sign. It remains to be seen if the government can keep up the good work and keep the situation under control.
