All those affected are undergoing treatment under various centres according to Deputy DMO Dr Manoj. 

It looks like more than 50 people were there, but we think that all persons were not present together at a time since there are regulations that not more than 50 people should be present at weddings at a time. 

The state of Kerala has reported over 18,000 coronavirus cases.
