The fall in cases is just an illusion and once the tests are conducted in a wide range the situation will become upside down showing a drastic hike in the number of cases.


Covid-19 positive cases in Trivandrum were relatively low on Sunday compared to the previous hike. Among 435 cases in Kerala, only 40 were affected from Trivandrum district as the past two days showed a rise of 129 and 69 respectively with 30 cases due to community transmission amid not less than 10 has no proper source. It had been viewed that only four new cases were reported from the most exposed Poonthura region. According to the instructions given by health officials, the number of tests conducted over the last few days was quite huge which led to the rise in positive cases. The test positivity rate was about 18% for the past 18 days.
But the officials were forced to put a break the tests due to the non-cooperation protest staged by Poonthura residents. The new cases reported from yet another cluster was given priority from Friday and so tests got delayed in previous clusters. The health department suggests a huge spike of cases in the district with special reference to Poonthura. Panchayat and ward council demands more tests in containment zones as the ratio of unconnected positive cases to connected cases is getting higher. The latest zone Kottapuram is even densely populated than Poonthura and the area is too cramped where social distancing is of no use.
The fall in cases is just an illusion and once the tests are conducted in a wide range the situation will become upside down showing a drastic hike in the number of cases.
Triple lockdown in Trivandrum has been relaxed and restrictions imposed on containment zones only. Public utilities, including petrol bunks and power units, will open. Hospitals, medical shops will continue to function.
