In the last 24 hours, 871 people tested positive for the deadly virus in Bhubaneswar.
Testing has been affected in a few districts of Odisha since Wednesday due to Cyclone Yaas and restoration work. That might have resulted in lower daily caseload in the state and districts, sources said.

Maximum cases have been reported from Patia (37), followed by Khandagiri (36), Old Town (35), Nayapalli (32), Jharpada (25), Laxmisagar and Sailashree Vihar (24 each), Unit-9 (21), Jayadev Vihar and Dumduma (20 each).
