Thiruvananthapuram: On the day of another high number of Covid-19 cases, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, here on Thursday, said the situation was inching to community spread. "We had said we are on the verge of community spread. We are getting closer to that. The need of hour is to avoid all crowding. Things went out of control in a market here and that caused fresh lockdown. All should be cautious and venture out only if there is a major need," said Vijayan. Of the 6,534 recorded cases in Kerala, 2,795 are presently active. "Of the new cases during the day, 117 came from abroad, 74 from within the country, and 133 are local infectees. Source of 7 is unknown and 8 are defence or para military officials," said Vijayan. He said Poonthura (a fishing hamlet in the state capital) had been identified as an area of 'super spread' and the only way to keep things under control was to remain indoors. "of the 213 cases in the past three days in the state capital, 190 were from local infectees. (IANS)
