THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: There is a steep hike in the infected cases of COVID-19 in Poonthura in the capital city. Of the 600 samples tested (Truenat testing) 119 have turned positive. There are 120 people in the initial contact list of a patient.

In the first phase, only a fisherman had contracted the disease. Experts have warned that there are chances for unknown sources of infected cases. The next two weeks are crucial for Poonthura.

54 had contracted the disease in the capital city the other day. 42 cases through contact were reported yesterday. A decision to withdraw the announced triple lockdown depends on the transmission of the disease.
