Richard Murray, Chief Executive of the King's Fund health charity, said the figures showed that social care, or care outside hospital settings, should be taken as seriously as the National Health Service. With the new cases, the total caseload in the state reached 3,147 and the death toll stood at 105 on Thursday.

So far, a total of 284,868 people in the United Kingdom have tested positive for coronavirus.

So far 448 migrants, or those who have travelled to Telangana from other states and countries have been tested positive for coronavirus.

ONS figures showed that there were 46,380 excess deaths, the number of deaths above the expected, between March 7 and May 1, and that just over a quarter of those - 12,900 - did not officially involve the coronavirus.

The patients who passed away in the past 24 hours up to Friday 5pm were aged between 43 and 100 and all had underlying health conditions.

On May 22, altogether 25 districts had not seen any new case of Covid-19 for a fortnight, but with lockdown easing and free inter-state movement allowed, the virus has now spread to 29 districts.

Also, 212 deportees have tested positive for Covid-19 and are undergoing treatment in the state.

As of Friday evening, 1,019 patients were in hospital with confirmed or suspected coronavirus, with 20 in intensive care.

More than 38,000 people have recovered from the virus, and that number will change on Saturday as the state updates the recovery total.

In case of onset of any symptoms of ILI OR SARI, people are requested to immediately contact the nearest government health facility without any delay, said the director of public health and family.

The figures came as Scotland's former chief scientific adviser, Anne Glover, called for an inquiry identifying failures around the United Kingdom government's handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.
