THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that most of the Covid deaths in the state were due to serious comorbidities and the recent increase in the number of deaths was in proportion to the increase in the number of patients. People with diseases such as diabetes should not compromise on preventive measures. The reduction in mortality is due to the improvement in the health system, the CM said during the press meet.

"The lockdown is generally complete in the state. Realizing the seriousness of the matter, I would like to thank everyone who cooperated with the lockdown regardless of the inconvenience. The presence of a high-spreading delta virus may persist for a long time. People must abide by the Covid code of conduct even if the lockdown is withdrawn. Those who have been vaccinated and recovered from the disease may get infected due to the delta virus. These people have less severe symptoms and less risk of death. But will require quarantine and treatment", he added.

The CM also said that the spread of the disease has come down as intended. "The lockdown announced now will continue until the 16th. The lockdown strategy will be changed in the coming days. Instead of implementing the same restrictions and testing methods across the state, it is planned to impose different levels of restrictions depending on the severity of the spread of the disease. Given the new situation, the local self-governing bodies will be categorized according to the extent of the spread of the disease and preventive measures will be taken," he added.
