Kerala completely shut down for two days.

Why is Kerala facing a surge in cases? Is two-day lockdown sensible? Do you think a two-day lockdown will curb the cases? Is the lockdown just a formality? How will the lockdown affect the businesses?
Kerala’s government has declared a two-day state of emergency in the state, which sees an increase in daily new instances of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19). Kerala will be on lockdown on July 17 and 18, according to an official decree.
According to the directive, the current classification of local self-government institutions (LSGIs) based on the seven-day test positivity rate (TPR) would be maintained. According to the statement, exceptions and limits already in place for the appropriate LSGI categories — A, B, C, and D — will be maintained. Additionally, all three categories can open until 8 p.m. on days when they are already permitted to operate, according to the decree.
The government has authorized further relaxations for the operation of commercial facilities in the wake of increased protests against the lengthy lockdown measures, particularly from the trading community.
On the other hand, the chief minister stated that the government understands the traders’ concerns but that if they do not change their ways, they will be dealt with. He stated that the state has not yet arrived at a point where the businesses’ demand that all shops be allowed to open on all days be granted.
On Thursday, the Samastha Kerala Jem Iyyathul Ulema will hold public protests to demand that the present Covid limitations be relaxed to allow more people to pray in mosques, particularly during Friday prayers. Protests will take place at 11 a.m. on July 15 in front of the Secretariat and front of the district collectorate and local body institutions, by Covid rules.
