People belonging to the Hindu community are barred from celebrating their festivals in the Indian state of Kerala.

The Hindu festivities were restricted indoors by the Kerala government due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Hindu festivities were restricted indoors by the Kerala government due to the COVID-19 pandemic.Kerala is one of the worst affected states as it recorded more than 20,000 news cases of coronavirus for five straight days. The festivities remained a low-key affair as the state government imposed various curbs to stop the spread of the virus. Some online posts stated that the Kerala government had banned the Hindu community from celebrating festivals. However, the claim is found to be false.

The state government had only put some restrictions as the cases were rising continuously. People were asked to celebrate the festivals at home and follow COVID-19 protocols. Hindu festivals of Onam, Vishu, and Thrissur Pooram celebrations were held but without much pompous. The government had put brakes on large gatherings and banned communal feasting.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organization or your national healthcare authority.
