The Kerala government on Wednesday said a complete lockdown will be imposed in the state on July 24 and 25 in view of the rising COVID-19 cases. The state government has also directed the health department to conduct mass COVID testing on Friday, with a target of 3 lakh tests. Special focus will be on the districts where the seven-day test positivity rate (TPR) is above 10%. The government has also asked district collectors to identify and demarcate micro-containment zones in all districts, regardless of the categorisation of the Local Self Government Institution (LSGI) regions. In such areas, intensified restrictions have been ordered to bring down rising COVID-19 infections.
