Twenty-eight more positive cases of COVID-19 were reported in Mandya district on Saturday, taking the district’s total figure to 237.

According to sources at the district administration, along with some of their relatives, family members and friends, they had returned to their native places recently in private vehicles following the rapid spread of the virus in Maharashtra.

The 10 men, nine women, four girls and five boys have been admitted to the Mandya Institute of Medical Sciences (MIMS), in the town.
