Amidst a surge in Covid-19 cases in Kerala, Opposition leader VD Satheesan criticized the Pinarayi Vijayan-led state government's handling of the situation. Speaking in the state's Malappuram district, Satheesan expressed concern about the virus's spread, highlighting the government's lack of transparency regarding the issue, as reported by India Today.

Addressing the media, Satheesan pointed out that, nationally, the Ministry of Health reported over 1,600 out of more than 1,800 Covid-19 cases in Kerala. He questioned the government's response to the increasing numbers, citing four deaths, 119 new cases, and the prevalence of the new Omicron variant.

Comparing Kerala's approach to Tamil Nadu, Satheesan emphasized the need for immediate action, criticizing the government's silence on the steps taken. He raised concerns about the potential for public panic and urged the government to act promptly to curb the virus's spread.
