How AP Secretariat is now an Emerging Hotspot for COVID-19

The Andhra Pradesh Secretariat in Amaravati is turning out to be an emerging hotspot for coronavirus with one more employee testing positive as 141 new cases were reported in the last 24 hours, taking the state aggregate to 4,112. Meanwhile the toll increased by three, taking the total deaths to 71 in the state. 
 
The rise in cases is suspected to have been due to the super-spreaders from East Godavari and Guntur districts along with those coming to the state from other parts of the country.
After two staffers from the General Administration Department and Agriculture Department, respectively, tested positive for coronavirus in the Secretariat, another employee from the Revenue Principal Secretary was found infected. A Special Protection Force constable on duty at the Legislature building, situated on the same campus, also tested positive for COVID-19, following which the Legislature authorities have asked the staff to work from home.
