Shocking but yet true. According to reports, a woman from Kerala became the first person to test positive again for COVID-19 in India. A medical student in China’s Wuhan, she tested positive for the novel coronavirus in January last year after returning to India for semester break.
The woman who hails from Thrissur in Kerala tested positive for COVID-19 again four days ago, says the report. Currently, she is under home quarantine and asymptomatic. Her samples were tested as she was ready to travel for New Delhi because of study purposes. Then the RT-PCR result turned out to be positive.
Kerala recorded 7,798 cases of COVID-19 on July 12, with a test positivity rate of 9.14 per cent. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that on July 10, though the number of infections is not going down, constraints like lockdown cannot continue indefinitely and things need to go back to normal as soon as possible. Adding further, the restrictions are being eased or phased out as soon as possible.
While having the vaccinations in the state, the chief minister said that 43% of people in the above 18 years category have received the first dose and 12 per cent have received the second dose.
