THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: With five positive Covid-19 cases, Kerala on Sunday sounded an all-around alert, with the state police warning that those who come from countries where coronavirus is raging and fail to report to health authorities will be prosecuted. State Health Minister K.K. Shailaja on Sunday said the state had five new positive cases at Pathanamthitta district, and that they now been isolated in the state-run hospital there. She said the family consisting of a couple - a 54-year-old man and his 53-year-old wife - and their 24-year-old son, had come from Italy on February 29 but behaved irresponsibly by not reporting to the authorities. “At the moment, we are more concerned at giving full medical care to the three and two of their relatives,” said Shailaja. She said that apart from the trio, the two other confirmed cases were of their relatives - another couple. (IANS)
