Kerala To Go Into Another Lockdown?

More than 1000 people infected in one day in the state. We are going into another lockdown people.

Hospitals are getting overwhelmed. Shame but if this helps like earlier I guess there is no other way. Kerala may consider returning to a statewide lockdown to curb the spread of COVID-19. A final decision on this matter will be taken at a special cabinet meeting to be held on Monday. The move comes in the wake of 1,038 cases being detected in the state in a single day on Wednesday. This had forced the government to announce a case in Ernakulam’s Aluva region and also tighten vigil across the state.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that the state’s fatality average is 0.31 per cent when compared to the national average of 2.41 per cent. The state’s situation is better, but some cannot digest it, he said, while responding to criticism from the Opposition. Kerala has registered a total of 15,032 cases so far including 8,818 cases that are currently active. 6,164 patients have recovered, while 47 have died in the state. Taking another precautionary measure, the government on Thursday announced cancellation of the assembly session scheduled from July 27, reported the news agency. Government’s consideration for a state-wide lockdown comes even as capital city Thiruvananthapuram and many parts of the district are already under lockdown for over two weeks and will continue to observe it till July 28.

This is depressing guys. The economy is suffering and businesses are closing and many, many people are getting affected. I think I will stock up on some essentials just to be careful and hopefully it won’t have to come to that.
