Two deaths have been reported in Bhopal and in Indore.

On Wednesday, the health department conducted tests on 16,987 samples that were collected, out of which 203 were rejected.

Out of 52 districts, the number of infected people is zero in only four districts. But, in the remaining small, medium and major cities, the number of cases is increasing rapidly.
