Kerala on Saturday reported ten more covid-19 cases, while 19 more people recovered, said chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
One person died in Kerala’s Kannur on Saturday, was a native of Puducherry’s Mahi and hence is not counted in the state’s official death tally but Puducherry’s. So Kerala’s total death count is still two people.
The total number of recorded cases in the state now stands at 373, which includes 228 active patients, 2 casualties and the rest have recovered.
This is the fifth day where the state reported more recovered cases than fresh ones, indicating that the infection curve may be flattening. Total number of people recovered so far is now at 143, the highest in India.
The fresh cases have come from Kannur (7), Kasargod (2) and Kozhikode (1). Three of them have a history of foreign travel and the rest infected through contacts, said the CM.
