Once praised for controlling the pandemic, the state of Kerala, along the Arabian Sea, has become the COVID-19 hotspot in India.
The local government has eased restrictions for the Onam – Kerala’s biggest festival and shopping season - but police are out in force to enforce mask-wearing and prevent crowding.
With a high number of infections, experts say Kerala, in the south, and also regions in India’s northeast are still in second waves of the pandemic, which could lead to a surge of COVID-19 in other states.
Roughly nine percent of all Indians have been vaccinated across the country.
