Kerala not responding well to the pandemic. 

Amid the surge in covid cases in India, Kerala is witnessing its highest peak, Union Minister V Muralidharan lashed out at CM Pinarayi Vijayan for “taking credit for Kerala’s Covid success stories" and going mute when the state is “experiencing worst situation" with 19% test positivity rate (TPR).

The minister of state for external affairs ministry said that states like Maharashtra and Delhi will face the brunt of Kerala’s high caseload in the future, “NRIs will be at receiving end too".

The BJP has accused the Left government in the state of doing little to mitigate the health crisis and being busy “covering it up" through motivated propaganda.

“The chief minister is not even uttering a word about the situation. In Kerala, one patient can spread the infection to 1.5 more percent than before," Muralidharan said. Kerala on Wednesday reported 31,445 fresh Covid-19 cases and 215 deaths, pushing the total infection count to 38,83,429 and the fatalities to 19,972.
