Kerala witnessed a slight rise in the COVID graph as it confirmed 13,550 new positive cases yesterday. The present test positivity rate of the state is 11 per cent. 104 deaths were also reported due to COVID taking the death toll to 13,093. Meanwhile 10283 people recovered from the COVID and the state has 99,174 active cases.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan while briefing the media expressed concern regarding the TPR hike hovering over 10 per cent. He said that the COVID restrictions imposed will continue as such in areas where the TPR is continuously escalating.

He added that the number of COVID patients is not declining significantly these days and hence the spread rate of the infection is expected to decline only at a very gradual pace throughout the state.
