Numerous IT companies in the state have allowed their employees to work from home in the wake of 14 cases of COVID -19 being reported and about 3000 people under observation at homes and in hospitals.

The decision to step up capacity was taken at a meeting of representatives of various telecom service providers in Kerala Circle and officials of the Telecommunication Department convened by the Secretary, Electronics and IT.
