Thiruvananthapuram, Apr 11: The effective handling of Covid-19 pandemic by the Kerala Government has received a big endorsement in the International media with the latest being a report in Washington Post which suggests that the State’s success could prove instructive to the entire country.
The Washington Post quoted Kerala Health Minister K K Shailaja Teacher as saying “We hoped for the best but planned for the worst. Now, the curve has flattened, but we cannot predict what will happen next week.” "The Minister said six states had reached out to Kerala for advice. She, however, noted that it might not be easy to replicate Kerala’s lessons elsewhere," according to the Minister's office quoting the report here on Saturday.
The report, “Aggressive testing, contact tracing, cooked meals: How the Indian state Kerala flattened its coronacurve”, said experts are of the view that Kerala’s proactive steps like early detection and broad social support measures could prove as a model for the rest of the country. (UNI)
