No free Covid treatment for unvaccinated: Kerala Govt

Thiruvananthapuram: As the world watches for the new Covid variant Omicron, a high-level conference convened by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan decided on Tuesday to tighten Covid protocols and to stop providing free treatment to people who do not take vaccines.

The meeting also agreed not to modify standards, despite the film industry's desire that theatres be allowed to seat 100 percent of their patrons, rather than the current 50 percent. According to the most recent statistics, 96% of the state's population over the age of 18 has received the first Covid vaccination dose, and 63% has received both shots.

Around 1.4 million people have missed the deadline for receiving the second vaccine, according to the government, and all of them must receive the second dosage as soon as possible.

Vijayan said after the meeting that anyone who refuses to to take vaccinagtion will not be eligible for free Covid treatment at government facilities. "People who have allergies or other reasons for not getting a vaccine will be required to submit a medical certificate from a government doctor to that effect. Those government workers who do not have a medical certificate would be required to bring an RT-PCR test result every week "he stated.
