The state of Kerala has been reporting doggedly higher Covid-19 Cases than most other states.

Even as the rest of the country sees a decline in Covid-19 cases, Kerala, which once set an example in fighting the deadly virus, is still witnessing a surge in cases.

India reported 43,654 new Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours of which almost 50% of cases came from the state of Kerala. With 22,129 cases, Kerala reported the highest daily spike in infections since May 29.

From reporting India’s first Covid-19 case, handling the first and the second wave of covid-19 to its worrisome daily tally of new cases currently, Kerala has come a long way in its fight against Covid-19.

According to experts, the steady rate of COVID infection in Kerala would help the state to fight off the virus and ensure medical facilities are not overwhelmed, but the prolonged effect of the virus has put the medical infrastructure under stress.

A prolonged infection rate would put stress on the doctors and other healthcare workers and in case a third wave comes, the medical system which is partially filled could be overwhelmed.

However in the most optimistic scenario, continued vaccination and adherence to necessary covid appropriate behavior can prove sufficient to prevent future surges.
