"Strict restrictions as on weekends will be in force from Tuesday to Sunday (4 - 9 May). Proper guidelines will be issued. Disaster Management Act will be invoked as essential. Seamless transportation of O2, medicines & medical equipment will be ensured," Kerala chief minister wrote on Twitter.


Further, the CM urged people to follow strict Covid-19 guidelines on the counting day of Kerala's legislative assembly result.

CM Vijayan further urged people to stay at home and opt for home delivery as much as possible. He added, "Traders can employ delivery staff. Orders can be taken on the phone or on WhatsApp. This will reduce crowding in markets. In markets traders should maintain 2m distance between each other and wear double masks".
