Kerala Crosses 30,000 Cases For First Time; Active Caseload Rose By 255%

For the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic last year, Kerala has reported more than 30,000 Covid cases in a day. The state’s active caseload has risen by a whopping 255 per cent in the last two weeks, according to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

Kerala, one of the worst-hit states in the country, had logged 21,890 Covid cases and 28 deaths in 24 hours yesterday. Today, the daily coronavirus figures stood at 32,819 cases and 32 deaths.

The state has 2,47,181 active cases presently.

Several states have been breaking their records of biggest Covid spikes as the more dangerous second wave of infections sweeps through the country.

India has been reporting over three lakh daily coronavirus cases and over 2,000 deaths for several days now, triggering critical shortages of drugs, hospital beds and medical oxygen.

The Left government, however, has assured there would not be any disruptions in oxygen supply in the state. It has decided to ramp up oxygen availability and create buffer stocks.

The state has announced strict curbs to control the unprecedented coronavirus surge.
