Congress leader @ShashiTharoor’s Tweet on COVID Hotspots:
- A bit curious as to why Thiruvananthapuram is listed as a #Covid19 hotspot when it has such a great track record!?
- Perhaps @MoHFW_INDIA can enlighten us?
Union Health Minister @DrHarshVardhan’s reply:
- As of today, there are 170 hotspot districts,207 non-hotspot & rest non-infected.
- Hotspot classification based on:
- Highest caseload District contributing more than 80% of cases in lndia or
- Highest caseload District contributing more than 80% cases for each state or
- Districts with doubling rate less than 4 days
Congress leader @ShashiTharoor’s reply to the Minister:
- Thanks for the response @drharshvardhan!
- You & your colleagues are doing a great job in difficult circumstances. Guess this means that it won’t be long before Thiruvananthapuram is off the hotspot list, as Kerala has categorised it in a lower tier than the most affected districts.
