Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan Questioned By Opposition Over Covid-19 Test Result

INDIA Team Latestly|

A day after Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan was discharged from hospital after testing negative for Covid-19, Opposition parties, Congress & BJP sought action against him for allegedly flouting Covid-19 protocols. They allege Vijayan, who tested positive for coronavirus on April 8, concealed his health condition to participate in a road show two days before the assembly polls & also voted on April 6, the polling day. They have also raised questions if the CM was discharged early in violation of the quarantine protocols for patients. Hospital authorities said he might have contracted the infection days before he got admitted, reported Hindustan Times. State health minister KK Shailaja said the whole controversy was unwarranted and uncalled for. Vijayan, the CPI(M) candidate from Dharmadam in Kannur, had travelled throughout the state during the campaign for the polls. The state logged 8,778 new Covid-19 cases & 22 related fatalities on April 14, taking the caseload to 11.89 lakh & the death toll to 4,836, according to state government data.
