Kerala fails to tackle Covid cases: Congress

Kochi: Kerala is turned to be a Covid hotbed with more than 30,000 new cases reported in the last 24 hours. 

Opposition Congress has criticized that the Pinarayi Vijayan government has failed to contain Covid cases in the state. 

Cases have been increasing day by day; on Wednesday, more than 31,000 cases were reported, however, in India total of 50,000 cases were reported; Kerala alone had contributed more than 60 percent of cases. 

Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee Working President PT Thomas criticized that the state government had failed in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Kerala government claimed that it was doing well and taking action. But now, the real picture is out, and it shows that it is an utter failure of the state government in tackling COVID 19," Mr Thomas said.

Mr Thomas said that the state and central governments need to make serious interventions to lower the cases in the state. 

"A serious intervention is needed from the State and Centre. Otherwise, the cases will increase. People are in a panic. Immediate and time-bound action is needed from the state government. We need to overcome this situation," said Mr Thomas. The number of active cases recorded in the state was 1,70,292 and the positivity rate is (TPR) 19.03 percent.
