With two more deaths due to novel coronavirus, Agra's death toll due to the disease has risen to 33, even as the city has recorded a steady decline in the number of new cases in the past 10 days.

Six new cases till late Sunday evening took the total tally to 857, of which 747 patients have recovered. The latest casualties due to coronavirus were reported on Sunday.

The number of samples taken for testing in the city has gone up to 12,027.

Meanwhile, the district administration has again allowed the use of mobile phones in isolation wards and Covid-19 hospitals following protests over the move, but only after recording details in a separate register.

District officials also said that the number of migrant workers wishing to travel back to their native states had now reduced to a trickle, and just a few hundred remained at the Agra ISBT to be transported out of the city.

In 10 days, more than 15,000 workers from other states have been ferried back.
