As Covid cases continue to surge in Kerala, government imposes night curfew, weekend lockdown

On Saturday, samples of 1,67,497 people have been tested, out of which samples of 31,265 people have been found positive.

Amidst the fears of the third wave of Covid-19, the Kerala Government has announced the imposition of night curfew and weekend lockdown in the entire state. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan issued a new order on Saturday saying there will be a complete ban on leaving the house between 10 pm and 6 am without any reason. The order will come into effect from Monday.

Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan said for the prevention of corona epidemic, an order has been issued to intensify testing in the entire state. On Saturday, samples of 1,67,497 people have been tested, out of which samples of 31,265 people have been found positive. However, 153 corona patients have died.

For the last few days, more than 40 thousand new cases of corona were being reported across the country. Most of these cases were from Kerala and Maharashtra. However, concerned about the same, the Center had written a letter to the CMs of both the states asking them to consider imposing night curfew. According to experts, the reason for the sudden increase in corona cases in Kerala is the festival of Onam, which was celebrated with great fanfare across the state.

As the cases started rising, the Opposition and public health experts have attacked the state government’s alleged carelessness and unwise decisions for the spike.

Apart from Kerala, 4 thousand 831 new cases of corona were registered in Maharashtra on Saturday. Mizoram has also seen an increase in the cases of Covid infection.
