The central government is sending a six-member team from the National Centre for Disease Control to Kerala, which has been witnessing an alarming surge in daily COVID-19 cases.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia will impose a three-year travel ban on citizens travelling to countries on the kingdom's red list, including India, under efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus and its new variants.

The red-list countries include the UAE, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Iran, Turkey, Armenia, Ethiopia, Somalia, Congo, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Belarus, India and Vietnam, PTI reported.

Kerala Reports Over 22,000 New Covid Cases For Third Consecutive Day
Kerala reported over 22,000 coronavirus cases for third day in a row on Thursday, as a central team will rush there for effective COVID-19 management while its steady R-factor growth prompted analysts to point out the state will remain in the top spot for the next couple of weeks vis-a-vis new infections.

The R-factor indicates the speed at which the viral infection is spreading in the country and an analysis by researchers at the Institute of Mathematical Sciences in Chennai suggests Kerala has more worries in store.

The smaller the value of R is, the faster the disease is on the decline. Conversely, if R is greater than 1, the number of infected people is increasing in each round-- technically, this is what is called the epidemic phase.

The bigger the number is than one, the faster the rate of spreading of the disease and Kerala has the highest number of active cases and continues to have an R-value around 1.11.
