Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala’s COIVD-19 tally on Monday touched 5,622 with 193 fresh cases being reported, as the death toll rose to 27 with two more people succumbing to the virus.

Thirty-five have been infected through contact. The two deceased are a 82-year-old man, who had returned from  Saudi Arabia recently and was suffering from cancer, and a 66-year-old man, under treatment at the Ernakulam Medical college hospital.

Vijayan said community spread was a threat and the government was taking various steps to prevent it, including  triple lockdown and widespread testing.

The triple lockdown has been imposed for a week in Thiruvanathapuram since this morning. All government offices, private establishments are shut and public transport is off the roads.

Giving the break-up of cases, Vijayan said Malappuram recorded 35 cases, Pathnamthitta26, Ernakulam 25, Alappuzha and Kozhikode 15 each, Thrissur 14, Kollam and Kannur 11 each, Wayanad and Palakkad eight each, Thiruvananthapuram seven, Kottayam, Kasaragod and Idukki six each.

In the last 24 hours, over 9,000 samples have been taken for testing. So far, 2,04,452 samples have been sent for testing.

Vijayan said testing will be intensified in the border areas, especially in Manjeswaram in Kasaragod district,
where everyday people are going to Mangaluru in Karnataka on a daily basis. This is causing the spread of the virus, he said, adding daily travel in this manner cannot be allowed.
