    So whats that better in Kerala? litrecy? dont get carried away by PR jobs. Communist strategy anywhere in the globe is to make shut the public mouth and rule by government mafia and project good things to the world. A person in kasragod was recently admitted to hospital for a head injury due to jack fruit is fallen on his head , when the test was done he was covid1 imagine how he got it and if he was freekimg around in the place he live howmany of them had been infected? just because the immunity in the coastal belt is good they unknowingly get infected and recovered while in the cities generaly with low immunity and better test facilities have emerged reported more number of cases! thats been said only major city in kerala is kochi and thats the 75th largest city in india! dont compare apple with kajauda gonku mare pokkade!

    Hope except Kerala freedom of speech is there in all over India. Kerala health officials are identifying the people then quarantine them and testing. Not doing test on all people (some goats also).
    Once the patient is identified, his route map is published and asking the people who were in the particular spot, ti get in contact with the Health workers.
    The person who was plucking the jack fruit was an Auto Driver, who may be in the spot and failed to contact the health workers.
    The bitter fact in Manglore was that the source of Civid was identified in First Neuro hospital but failed to stop the spreading. Read some Indian Newspaper also.
    And please note Bellary is not in Kerala.

    Do not worry too much about Kerala or Karnataka.
    The second wave in Victoria is hitting you hard.
    Your state is so isolated that by 10th July, Australians living in any other state can travel anywhere but you guys will have to bite the bitter winter and corona.
    May be you should pass on Modi's number to Morrison, so that Morrison can take a leaf out of Modi's book.
    Getting MA from the NSW library or WhatsApp University does not make any one scientist in Corona virus.

    exactly this is what it shows the real difference. Keralites are one when it comes to kerala and any place within kerala they got unity to defend where as in fools paradise every single owner is a king with own language culture eating habits and talk. god bless us

    It would be rather wise to shift these covid hospitals to the outskirts of the city with less human contact in the surrounding since the disease can penetrate through many obstacles and there is danger of spreadig.

    Sad to learn that 10 Doctors in Wenlock hospital are infected. Other medical staff may also be at risk in the hospital. Thorough checking may be done as they move around after duty and there is every possibility of spreading the disease to their contacts. Get well soon Doctors. Your sacrifice is invaluable.

    Extremely painful to observe Doctors, medical staff falling prey to Covid19 virus..... were they provided with fictitious PPE Chinese kits ??? We pray that all doctors get cured, at the earliest. Certainly an eye opener for the state government !!!

    This is the common trend observed throughout the world. Doctors and health workers in COVID hospital are prone to infection even after wearing PPE due to close proximity to coronavirus patients throughout the day. Persons aged above 50 years and with comorbidities should not be working in COVID hospitals.

    It's sad to hear that this happens to our doctors....
    High grade and best protective gear should be provided to our fighters... if not then this is a complete failure.. Hope nalin kumar and bandary take care of all this well.

    10 is a huge number and here after proper procedures should be followed.
    Hope they take it serious.

    Its very unfortunate that even doctors who are covid duty are getting infected, this might discourage other doctors in discharging their duty n also enough doctors may not be available to treat the covid patients in future.. they should be given adequate safety guards and should not make them overwork...
