THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: As other places in India have now reported confirmed cases of coronavirus, Kerala Health Minister KK Shailaja on Tuesday said that continuous vigilance is required.

"In the first phase, we took prompt action and controlled it well. We have to be very cautious as other places in India have now reported confirmed cases of Coronavirus. Our surveillance has to be continued strictly," said Shailaja.

The Health Minister said they have decided to strengthen the monitoring in airports.

"If a person is coming from the affected region with any symptom they will be directly shifted to the isolation ward. If they don't have symptoms they will be referred for home quarantine," she added.

"Three patients who were initially tested positive have recovered. In continuous tests, they have tested negative. Now we have below 30 people in hospitals with mild symptoms," the health minister stated.
