When the pandemic hit India in March, Kerala emerged as an example of how to properly handle the Coronavirus. However, over time as borders opened up and normalcy resumed, cases in Kerala began rising exponentially. In episode 594 of Cut The Clutter, Shekhar Gupta talks about what went wrong in Kerala, its many disadvantages in terms of population, the efficacy of its three-tier Covid centres and why it seems to have given up on the idea of controlling the pandemic. Gupta also explains why another state up north, Punjab, is experiencing an unusually high fatality rate.
