Telangana Health Minister Etela Rajender said he was dismayed at the drastic rise in COVID-19 cases, partly because people don't follow precautions.

Families are hosting birthday parties, organising engagement functions, or getting together at homes to celebrate a new birth. Amidst all this it just takes one to become a super spreader, wasting the entire efforts of the government,” he said.

More than 6,000 COVID-19 patients are being treated in home isolation in Telangana and the state government is ramping up testing and the facilities to deal with the pandemic.
