Among the municipalities, Varkala and Nedumangad are in the D category. More than ten panchayats in Thiruvananthapuram are in D category. In Kollam, TPR in 17 grama panchayats is above 15%. There is triple lockdown presently in 28 local bodies in Kochi. In Alappuzha, the TPR is still high except in seven panchayats.
