The Kerala government on Saturday decided to carry out a screening of all passengers coming from other states into Kerala. The decision has been taken after the number of positive cases increases in the neighbouring states - Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan said that a team comprising police officers, health department officials and a health volunteer will carry out screening at railway stations.
"Our plan is to do the screening at the first station the train reaches our state. We have noticed that many trains may not stop at these stations. For such trains, the screening will be done at the first station the train stops in the state. The screening team will be split into multiple teams and each team will be assigned two compartments for screening. This will help reduce the delay due to screening," Pinarayi Vijayan said.
Each team will be lead by DSP rank officer from the region. The DSP rank officer will also be in charge of providing security to the team.
Parassala, Aryankavu, Valayar, Meenakshipuram, Mahe and Manjeshwara have been identified as the railway stations where screenings will be done.
