Kerala lockdown: The government of Kerala has decided that there will be a complete lockdown from 23rd to 24th of July as the covid-19 cases bumped up and the situation has worsened.


The government has ordered to conduct a mass testing campaign and fulfill the target of 3 lakh tests per day. The guidelines that were generated on 12th and 13th June have to be followed for the 23rd and 24th lockdown.


The District collectors are asked to make a list of micro-containment zones in various districts, they are directed to carry out strict restrictions to bring down the covid-19 cases in the state.


The decision of lockdown in Kerala was taken after a three-day relaxation in curbs were seen in the state in an account of Bakrid. On 16th June, a 3-day relaxation was established that permitted jewelry, footwear, and textile shops to open up.


The supreme court stepped in and asked the state to file a response application as the decision seemed to be tremendously abrupt looking at the current situation. The easing of curbs might lead to an increase in covid-19 cases which in turn will make the 3rd wave inevitable.


Pinarayi Vijayan had announced that the lockdown will not be lifted, for the time being, he also added that three lakh tests will be taken on Friday.


The abrupt decision made by the state government for Bakrid leads to an increase in Covid-19 cases. The state reported around 17000 covid-19 cases and 105 deaths today.
