Nothing to worry about on coronavirus, assures Kerala minister

Thiruvananthapuram: Even as 288 persons in Kerala have been kept under medical observation in the wake of the coronavirus scare, state Health Minister K.K. Shailaja asserted that there was no reason for any concern.

Of these 288 persons, seven are admitted in various state hospitals whereas the rest have been advised rest at home and to report to health authorities in case their condition worsens.

The authorities are also closely monitoring about 60 persons in Kozhikode who have returned from China.

On Monday, Chief Secretary Tom Jose got in touch with the Centre for taking steps to bring back mostly Kerala medical students from Wuhan in China, which is the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak.

Shailaja last week called a meeting of top health officials to take stock of the situation and ordered for requisite arrangements at state-run hospitals to meet any eventuality and setting up of isolation wards.

Screening at the Cochin international airport has been strengthened since Sunday with the setting up a full-fledged health desk there.
