He said that it has been the endeavor of the state from the very beginning to save as many people as possible from getting infected or falling prey to the virus until the vaccine is available to all.
“Many people are wondering why the number of patients has not come down in Kerala,” he told reporters. This is no surprise when examined in the context of public health principles. We can confidently say that there is no need to panic and things are under control. He said that during the second wave of Kovid-19, the delta form affected Kerala and the number of infected people has increased due to the huge population in the state.
“Besides, the disease has spread rapidly across the state due to the close association of rural and urban areas,” he said. The Chief Minister said that though the number of infections is not coming down, restrictions like lockdown cannot be continued indefinitely and things need to be normalized at the earliest.
