"Triple Lockdown" In Thiruvananthapuram From Today For A Week
The announcement comes hours after the tourism minister said the district was ''sitting on an active volcano'' with rising number of COVID-19 cases and there was no guarantee that there would be no community spread.
"No vehicle movement will be allowed inside the city. In the corporation limit, only medical shops and essential shops like provisional stores will be allowed. Rest of the establishments will be closed. The state secretariat and other government offices will remain closed," Mr Behera was quoted as saying in a release.
Kerala on Sunday reported the second highest single-day rise of 225 COVID-19 cases, including seven jawans of an Army unit in the state, taking the total to 5,429.
