Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Monday informed that there are 13 new coronavirus positive cases in the state, taking the total number of cases in the state to 266.
Two deaths had been reported previously, but those patients had other serious underlying ailments.
"Today's positive cases include two who had attended the Tablighi Jamaat in Delhi, taking the total who attended the meet to 12," said Vijayan
Vijayan said that while we have been able to somehow prevent the spread, the news that's coming from across the world is not that encouraging.
"18 Keralites have so far died in various countries, which are really depressing. Eight are from the US and we condole the deaths," said Vijayan.
