Government Medical College Hospital, Kerala University and APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University (KTU) have restricted entry of visitors to their premises in view of the sharp spike in COVID-19 cases.

The critical situation has prompted the hospital authorities to curb visitors’ entry from Monday onwards until further notice. Only one bystander will be permitted for each patient as part of preventing crowding. The pandemic norms will also be strictly enforced at the canteens on the campus.
