The Kerala State Government has decided to tighten the COVID-19 protocol and all control measures, now the case graph is continuously increasing.
As the test positivity ratio in Kerala exceeded 5 percent, a high-level meeting held in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday decided to tighten the Kovid protocol with immediate effect.
The decision came as it was found that on Wednesday, 3,502 people had tested 60,554 samples in the last 24 hours. In the state, there are now 31,493 Kovid positive patients, while 11,08,078 people have been cured so far.
After the protocol has been tightened, it has been decided to ask the police to ensure that these are adhered to vigorously.
With the assembly elections on Tuesday, it was also decided to ask all polling agents to immediately undergo a Kovid test. The meeting also decided to set up vaccination camps and to see that in the next 45 days, all people over the age of 45 are vaccinated.
In the coming days, about one lakh people have been asked to take the exam. Officials fear that the situation may worsen, as the election and campaign saw a huge crowd of people across the state.
Furthermore, with elections, regular quarantine was also not strictly enforced for all those coming from outside the state and henceforth, all visitors must ensure that they pass the mandatory quarantine period without fail.
