South India: Kerala witnesses sharp dip in coronavirus cases, impacting pandemic’s National Dynamics
July 19,2021:Kerala has been contributing the maximum number to the national tally of Covid 19 cases but on Monday it drastically reduced its share to less than ten thousand to bring down the country’s total fresh daily cases significantly to 30,000.
This had its impact on the Covid dynamics of overall caseload and recoveries thus bringing relief to the country mulling over deciding whether the ‘second wave’ was on the way out. This may only be a small consolation as experts are still warn of a ‘third wave’ but also felt that it might not be as severe as its previous phase’s devastating strike.
With some improvement in the overall containment efforts alongwith strengthening the Corona Care infrastructure and slow but increasing vaccination, the next wave of Covid 19 could be less challenging, say experts.
Meanwhile, the slow turnaround in the virus infection incidence, restoration of activities under more and more relaxed restrictions is picking up pace, even while some controversies over religious congregations continued to be a hotly debated matter between the government and experts.
Some of the activities that have been resumed in the last two or three days are the screening of films by cinema houses with only 50 per cent capacity, school examinations being conducted in Karnataka, evenwhile other states have yet to take a decision on these activities.
Though, the impact of the gradual dilution of restrictions under the prolonged ‘lockdown’ for over two months have yet to be assessed, sporadic spikes in the cases in some districts of a few states have been taken as a reason for cautioning them to go slow on relaxing the curbs.
