THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: With the easing of Covid restrictions, health experts said will know the results of the Onam rush in a week. The spread of the disease is getting worse. The TPR crossing 17 per cent on Thiruonam day is a clear indication of this. It is estimated that the spread as part of Onam has been going on since August 17. So by August 27, the number of patients will rise sharply. The health department expects the number of patients to reach around four lakh by October if the transmission of the disease gets worse. It is assessed that the rush in the Onam market and the gathering at homes will lead to the spread of the disease. Police have reported that people gathered at places of worship in some districts after violating Covid norms.
