Amid rising number of coronavirus cases, the Kerala government has announced there will not be another ‘complete lockdown’ in the state. However, the surveillance will be strengthened, Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan added. The chief minister met the Opposition Parties leaders to discuss the COVID-19 situation in the state.
“There were two opinions on lockdown. Some experts opined for a complete shut down, while others wanted the existing restrictions to be strengthened. I put forward the same before the all-party-meeting and the representatives were not in favour of the complete lockdown. They said that the current restrictions should be strengthened,” Vijayan said after the meet.
Ramesh Chennithala, the Opposition Congress led United Democratic Front (UDF)leader in the assembly, had said the front was not for another lockdown, but a triple lockdown can be clamped in regions wherever required.
