  • | Friday | 30th April, 2021

The Health Department has come up with a list of centers where vaccines will be administered on Thursday. So far, 1,02,463 people have been administered two doses of the vaccine in the district. A total of 5,28,709 doses have been administered.

With Kozhikode district being on top of the chart in the number of COVID-19 cases being reported daily, the police have strengthened vigilance. Stringent action is being taken against those venturing out of homes unnecessarily, especially in critical containment zones.

As many as 1,306 cases were reported in the district on Wednesday for violation of the COVID-19 protocol. Most cases were against those who did not wear masks properly, and around 1,200 people were slapped with fines. The remaining cases pertained to failure in maintaining physical distancing, crowding, and delay in closing shops.

The district recorded 4,317 new cases, while the TPR stood at 27.17%. At the same time, 1,487 people were cured of the disease on Wednesday. At present, there are 37,467 COVID-19 patients in Kozhikode.

The District Collector has directed all local bodies to ensure that the COVID-19 protocol is strictly followed in every locality. It includes extra restrictions in containment zones, critical containment zones, and micro containment zones based on the number of cases being reported. It is necessary to follow the Health Department guidelines to stop the spread of the disease, the Collector said.

There have been complaints that the registration for vaccination through the Covin portal was not smooth. The available slots filled up very fast, and many found the process frustrating.
