Stating that the number of discharged patients is increasing in the state following the measures taken by the government, he said that it was good omen. He said that comparatively the death rate is very low in the state. "Only 96 deaths occurred in the state during the last 24 hours though 22,018 positive cases were registered," he said.

The principal secretary said that the gap between the admissions and discharge of patients has been steadily coming down.
