Covid 19 Hotspots in Kerala : Complete lockdown from April 14?: New Delhi: With the increasing number of coronavirus (covid-19) casualties in the country, the government has stepped up its initiative. States have also been asked to shut down districts where there is a high proportion of CVD victims in the country. The decision to close 62 districts with more than 82 per cent of the patients in the country is planned. This includes the 7 districts in Kerala.
Thiruvananthapuram, Pathanamthitta, Thrissur, Malappuram, Kozhikode, Kannur and Kasaragod districts will have to be regulated in Kerala. Covid 19 cases have been reported in 274 districts so far. Since March 22, the number of patients has tripled. This is what prompted the government to come up with a control scheme.
