The state of Telangana is entering dangerous waters as it witnesses a huge spike in the number of Coronavirus cases, especially in Hyderabad.

A total of 888 cases were reported in the city in the last 24 hours, pointing at the grim situation the city now finds itself in.

The government of Telangana had not conducted enough tests from the very beginning, which is one of the main reasons for the virus to be spreading at such a rapid rate right now. Of course, the relaxations in the state are also a part of the reason.

The government had also announced that it wasn’t testing anymore because it was clearing the backlog samples that hadn’t been tested so far. However, videos of people lining up in front of government-approved testing laboratories are trending all over Twitter.

Right now, social media is raging over the way the virus has been handled in the state, especially in Hyderabad. It is now to be seen what the government will do to rectify the situation.
