Thiruvananthapuram : In yet another high for Kerala, 1,608 more coronavirus cases were detected in the southern state on Saturday.

Health Minister KK Shailaja, presently in isolation, said in a statement here that 14,891 positive patients were under treatment in various hospitals, whereas 27,779 others have been cured so far.

"As many as 1,409 of those who tested positive on Saturday are local infectees. Thiruvananthapuram district alone accounted for 313 cases. At present, 1,60,169 persons in Kerala are under observation, including 12,358 in hospitals. There are 562 hotspots in the state," said Shailaja.
