As a consequence, active cases continued to decrease, totalling 74,518 now.

In the past 24 hours, only East Godavari district logged more than 1,000 new infections at 1,262 cases, raising the district's tally to 87,769 cases as it continues to be the epicentre of the pandemic.

West Godavari accounted for 962 new cases, followed by Prakasam (841), Guntur (532), Anantapur (505), Nellore (401), Vizianagaram (395), and Chittoor (362),
