- Contact tracing measures will be introduced to get the relevant data.
- Infected people who are isolated in their homes, will be monitored. As per the current data, around 80 of the infected people have been isolated in their homes.
As per the reports, there are 41 districts in Kerala where the Covid positivity rate is around 10% per week. The health ministry has also decided to increase the vaccination drive. More doses will be supplied to the state to ensure there are enough vaccines available at all times.
Other states in Kerala are also reporting a spike in the number of new cases. As of now, there is no data available on what exactly caused the spike. Most people blame that during the festival of Onam, the infections rose again due to celebrations and social gatherings.
