HYDERABAD: Telangana on Sunday registered 730 novel coronavirus cases, beating all single-day records as seven more persons died during the day, taking the death toll to 210.
Authorities said that 650 of the patients tested positive on Sunday are asymptomatic, while another 50 have mild to moderate symptoms and have been advised home quarantine. About five per cent of patients are in serious condition.

On Sunday, a total of 3,297 samples were tested, at least two-thirds of which were done in 18 private facilities. So far a total of 57,054 tests have been done in the state.
“Apart from a relaxation of lockdown, ramping up of testing facilities too has a role in the increasing number of cases,” said a senior health department official.
Incidentally, the number of tests is increasing progressively each day from 1000 samples being tested per day about a week ago.
The government has already announced its policy of conducting 50,000 tests in 10-15 days, in view of the spread of virus since the relaxation of the lockdown.
Officials have discharged 225 patients from various hospitals after completing recovery. With these, the total number of patients who have recovered stands at 3,731 in the state.
Of the 7,802 cases, 5,104 were recorded between June 1 and June 21, showing the increased spread of the virus since the lockdown was relaxed.
While majority of the cases continue to be recorded in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) limits, Jangaon is the latest among districts to see a surge in cases. While Rangareddy, Sangareddy and Karimnagar continue to see cases as well.
