COVID-19: 5,930 fresh cases emerge up in Kerala

In Kerala, corona cases keep on surging every single day. After reporting more than 9,000 cases of COVID-19 each in the last three days – with the maximum of 11,755 coming on October 10 – Kerala recorded only 5,930 cases on Monday, nearly half the number. However, this is also because of reduced testing on Sundays, with only 38,259 samples, as against the nearly 70,000 samples tested on other days. With Monday’s cases, the total number of people who have so far been infected with the coronavirus is nearing three lakh soon.
