Episode 86: What Went Wrong In Kerala?

Hello and welcome to The Moving Curve. I’m Rukmini, a data journalist based in Chennai. Twice a week on this mini-cast, I consider one question around the novel coronavirus epidemic in India. Tonight I’m considering this one — what went wrong in Kerala?

This is Nidheesh MK on Twitter.

His piece on what Kerala’s declaration of community transmission means is here.

In the next episode, Nidheesh and I talk about why August is going to be Kerala’s most challenging month yet, how it will test all of its systems, and whether the praise Kerala got in May was deserved.

Thank you for listening. This episode was edited by Anand Krishnamoorthi. On the next episode — a new question.

I am a data journalist based in Chennai, India.
