Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that the coming weeks are very crucial as there is an alarming increase in the number of COVID-19 patients in Kerala. The situation will depend on the level of caution we exercise, he added.
Public representatives getting affected with COVID is a serious issue. Some of them even participate in public events without maintaining social distance. This is not the right time to make friendly visits at households, the Chief Minister said.
Everyone should strictly follow COVID protocols, be it officials or the public. Some people are making false advice claiming to be COVID observers. This will adversely affect the resistance activities, the Chief Minister added.
Restriction for fish saleThe Chief Minister declared that the entry of people from other districts for selling fish has been banned in Thrissur district. The central market in Kozhikode has been closed.
Beypore harbour was also shut for 3 days to avoid disease transmission through contact. Entry to Palayam vegetable market has been restricted.
People are still travelling between Kerala and Karnataka through local paths on the border. This raises a huge threat to Kasaragod, the Chief Minister said.
