CHENNAI: After Karnataka and New Delhi, more states are imposing restrictions on people from Kerala in the wake of Covid-19. Tamil Nadu and West Bengal are the new states imposing restrictions.

Tamil Nadu has imposed a seven-day compulsory home quarantine for travellers from Kerala and Maharashtra. Apart from that, they should be in seven days of self-observation. People from other states need only to spend 14 days under self-observation. The order issued by Tamil Nadu Health Ministry asserted that those showing symptoms should be reported.

West Bengal has imposed restrictions on four states including Kerala. Those coming to Bengal from Kerala, Telangana, Karnataka and Maharashtra are directed to produce Covid negative RTPCR test result. They should produce the results taken in 72 hours. The regulation will come into effect from Saturday.

Karnataka and Delhi had earlier made RTPCR negative test results mandatory for those from Maharashtra and Kerala. Maharashtra has reported the highest number of daily Covid cases in the last four months. 8807 cases were confirmed in Maharashtra on Wednesday. In Kerala, 4106 people were diagnosed with the disease in 24 hours.
