No free Covid treatment for unvaccinated: Kerala CM Vijayan

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Taking a tough stand against those still reluctant to take Covid vaccines, the Kerala government on Tuesday decided not to provide free Covid treatment to them. The decision was taken at a review meeting here chaired by CM Pinarayi Vijayan.

An official release said the government would not pay for the treatment of those testing positive for Covid without receiving the vaccine. Those who could not get vaccinated due to health issues should produce a government doctor’s medical certificate to avail treatment, the release added.

Teachers and staff of educational institutions who have not taken both the vaccine doses due to illness or allergies should also produce a government doctor’s certificate to join work. They will have to submit a negative RT-PCR certificate every week to attend institutions. The directives will also be applicable to government employees.

The decisions came in the wake of reports that there are 5,000 teachers and non-teaching staff attending schools without taking the vaccine doses.
