Amaravati: The coronavirus cases in Andhra Pradesh continued their upward surge as 38 more people tested positive, taking the total to 572 on Friday.
Giving the figures for the last 24 hours ended at 9 am on Friday, the Health Department said 15 patients had recovered and been discharged from hospitals in Anantapuramu and Kadapa districts.

The department authorities said the spurt in the number of positive cases was because of the increased number of tests they were carrying out.
