The Kerala govt has imposed a "triple lockdown" in part of Malappuram district. The move is to check a spike in fresh coronavirus cases in parts of the district, after two doctors, a staff nurse and two paramedical workers in two private hospitals tested positive. The "triple lockdown" containment strategy was first implemented in Kerala's Kasaragod district. Under the strategy, the entire district comes under the general lockdown, while the second lockdown is for the containment zones which see strict restrictions. The third lockdown focuses on the primary and secondary contacts in the containment zones.
