Kochi: There is no respite for Kerala from the Covid-19 as the State logged 16,204 new cases and 156 deaths on Wednesday, according to the Department of Health, Government of Kerala. Health officials tested 1.15 lakh samples on Wednesday.

The end of the day saw 1.39 lakh patients undergoing treatment in various hospitals across the State. A senior Government physician  told The Pioneer that most district general hospitals and taluk head quarters hospitals reported full capacity by Wednesday.

“Situation is grave in Kerala because the figures thrown out daily after the RT-PCR tests are inconsistent. There is no uniformity in the number of persons testing positive or in the fluctuation in TPR, a measure than indicates the real status,” he said.

The doctor also added that the situation is unlikely to see any change before July 31. “All we can hope is that the number of daily positive cases remain static or stable if not lessening,” he said. Ernakulam with 1972 new cases topped the table of districts with highest number of new cases. Malappuram with 1685 cases continued to be a problematic district despite the efforts of the administration to bring down the number of cases.
