The ongoing pandemic is ringing the danger bells in Andhra Pradesh with cases increasing at a rapid phase. The virus has spread to the High Court and Secretariat too.
Amid the tense situation, the Andhra Pradesh government decided to do away with the awards for the year 2020-21. The government also postponed the house site patta distribution scheme.
Every year, the government issues awards for personalities for their excellence in various fields. Sadly, we cannot witness the award ceremony this year with the prevailing conditions.
Andhra Pradesh currently has 18,697 infections with 998 fresh cases reported on Sunday, which marks the highest spike of cases in a single day. So far 232 people succumbed to the virus.
