The district tested 259 new patients on Saturday, out of which 241 got infected through local transmission, said a press release issued by the department of health.

There are 10,862 persons undergoing treatment in various hospitals in the State. A total of 1,257 patients were hospitalized on Saturday, all because of Covid-19.
