Seven new cases of coronavirus were reported on Monday in Kerala – almost all who had returned from the state from elsewhere in the country or abroad, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said.
Of the seven, four came from Maharashtra and one each from Chennai and Kuwait. An 11-year-old child from Wayanad also has turned positive, he said.
In a Facebook post, Vijayan also said that 489 cases have been cured in the state so far, and at present, there are 27 positive cases under treatment.
“A total of 27,545 people are under observation at their homes while 441 others have been kept under observation at different hospitals across the state,” he said, adding that one more hotspot has been added in the state, taking the total to 34.
