District police chief Yathish Chandra says that the city of Kannur will be closed for a week. The action comes after relatives of the victims reached various shops in the city. Police are still challenging people to come to town. Kannur SP Yatish Chandra told Asianet News that the entire district is on alert due to the increase in contact infections. The 28-year-old Excise driver of Kovid has died following a vigil in Kannur. KP Sunil, a resident of Blathoor, is concerned that the source of the infection could not be ascertained.
The city of Kannur has been shut down completely due to an increasing number of cases of corruption. Meanwhile, Javan and his friend, who was in Quarantine, came from Delhi and died in a bike accident. Excise driver KP Sunil of Mattannur Range who was diagnosed with the disease on Tuesday had a heart attack at around 7 this morning. He had been on a ventilator for three days as he was suffering from acute pneumonia and his lungs were disrupted. The 28-year-old, who had no health problems, died days after being infected with Kovid.
Sunil Excise hails from Kakkatampara, Padiyur. The source of Sunil’s disease is yet to be ascertained. The excise team including Sunil had seized two persons who smuggled intoxicants from Karnataka on June 3rd. One of them fled. Since the survivor’s Kovid test could not be performed, there is little doubt that Kovid was transmitted through him. Mattanur excise office closed. Eighteen officers were placed in the Quarantine. There are 160 people on the primary contact list. Meanwhile, two youths were found dead in a bike accident this morning.
Abhishek Babu, a friend of Vaisakha, a soldier from Mavillayi, who had been under surveillance since June 9, had died. The burial will be after the Kovid test. Kannur town which was affected by the contact and the Thudiyankeri Muzhakkunnu panchayats in Padiyur were closed.
