According to the Kerala model for covid-19, 31,445 news cases were reported. Also, 215 deaths were on 25 August. However, the recovery rate is quite impressive with 97.67 percent.
The southern state, Kerala alone accounts for more than half of the cases in the country. The question is why does Kerala have such huge positivity rates?
The huge surge in covid cases needs effective leadership, but CM Pinarayi Vijaya failed to do so. According to reports, CM P.V. was busy in the election campaign rather than focusing on increasing cases.
With the rise in the positivity rate, the fear of a third wave has trembled the country. The cases curve is higher than any other state like Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and others.

KERALA MODEL COMPARED TO OTHER STATES
The Kerala model is trending on Twitter and many have tweeted ” Kerala the failure in a pandemic”. If we go a few months back when the second wave hits the country, UP and Kerala both imposed a complete lockdown. However, both faced the same situation, but today the UP positivity rate has declined to 0.02 percent.
Moreover, the imprudence of Kerala showed a “sorry state of affairs”, said the Supreme Court.
SHOULD INDIA LEARN FROM THE KERALA MODEL?
Apart from the negligence of Kerala’s decisions, one thing will not go unnoticed. The analysis of national and state data points out a whole different thing. It says Kerala manages the illness better due to which they have a low fatality rate. Further, it drew a discrepancy among other states in how people died outside the hospitals in metro cities. The fatality rate of Kerala is 0.5 percent.
The reports also said that the efficient detection rate caused a high number of cases in Kerala.
However, all these conditions and reports are contrasting. To discuss the situation of the rising case, the Health Secretary held a meeting at 5 pm today. The Chief Secretary and senior officers of Kerala and Maharashtra were present.
