India has recorded its largest ever coronaviral outbreak, with more than 6,000 cases of coronaviruses in the country and more than 30,000 deaths.
More than 1.2 million people are now under emergency lockdown in the six-member southern state of Kerala, with the state’s Chief Minister, Pinarayi Vijayan, declaring a state of emergency, with emergency personnel deployed at hospitals.
The state is also on high alert, with state police and National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams deployed in areas around the capital.
The coronavirinuses that cause the illness, known as coronavillavirus (CVD), are different to those that cause acute respiratory infections, or the flu.
They are a combination of viruses that can cause mild illness, pneumonia and diarrhea, which can be fatal.
It’s not clear why the coronovirus outbreak is different from other coronavil infections, but the coronivirus is still not widely known in India.
The Indian National Health Service (NHS) said the virus was spread mainly through direct contact with infected people.
But it said more people could have contracted the coronacids from infected people who had sneezed, or who had been exposed to infected air during an emergency or while in an unhygienic workplace.
In a news conference on Friday, Mr Vijayan said he would travel to Kerala on Friday to check the health of those in the state.
Mr Vijayan has repeatedly stressed the need to prevent the spread of the coronapid, and said that India should not be complacent and ignore the situation.
He also warned that the coronocid would continue to spread even after the outbreak ends.
The chief minister also declared a state emergency for the entire country, including the capital, New Delhi, on Friday.
“This is a very serious situation.
We need to take all measures to protect people and to ensure the health and safety of everyone,” Mr Vijayans spokesman, Anupam Madan, told reporters.
However, in an interview on Friday with the Indian Express newspaper, Mr Madan said India should work with the United Nations to help control the spread and eradicate the virus.
India, which has the world’s highest population, is one of the countries that has not had an outbreak of the CVD.
Vijayan says emergency rule over Kerala has been declared after ‘overwhelming’ data from Kerala Police Chief Ramesh Kumar, who confirmed that 1,200 cases of COVID-19 had been reported in the district.
According to the State Health Department, the district has recorded 1,965 confirmed cases, including 744 deaths, as of Thursday.
Kerala has also recorded 6,711 deaths from coronaviraetys coronaviroids, with a further 3,824 confirmed cases.
Cases of COV-19 in Kerala have been reported at hospitals, but most cases are reported to health officials, said a senior official, speaking on condition of anonymity.
A total of 11,811 cases of the disease have been confirmed in the State, the health official said.
While the Chief Minister has said the state is on high alerts, he did not elaborate on what precautions were being taken.
There is a huge demand for the virus control, the official said, adding that Kerala has had a large-scale vaccination campaign since 2014.
Health officials have said that about 100,000 people have been vaccinated since then, with over 30,500 in the first phase.
On Friday, the Chief Medical Officer of Kerala and Kerala State President, Dr Rajyavardhanan, confirmed that the number of confirmed cases in the city had reached 6,300, with an additional 3,000 patients receiving the second dose of COVA-19 vaccine.
Chief Minister and Kerala Chief Minister also announced the closure of schools, hospitals, airports and public transport, and also announced that the state would launch the coronaccine campaign by April 30.
People who do not need to be in a state-run health facility, will be allowed to travel outside the state, the chief minister said, without giving any details.
Officials in Kerala are also urging people to not take any steps that might harm themselves.
‘I am going to come to India’ The Chief Minister of Kerala has promised to visit India and speak to people who are in a position to speak out.
Dr Rameshawan said he was in India on a humanitarian mission to offer a free vaccination programme, which will begin on Thursday.
The Chief Medical officer said he has already visited a few districts, including Malappuram, Ernakulam, Visakhapatnam and Kochi.
He has also visited Delhi and other cities, but has not been able to get any
