Learn what the health ministry has to say on status of lockdown in Karnataka

Monday, 3rd May 2021

As the coronavirus situation in the country turns grim by the day, Karnataka Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar made some clarifications on the status of lockdowns in the state in the days to come.

Dr Sudhakar, responding to a query on outright resistance to government lockdowns in several places, stated on Saturday, “There is no proposal before the government to impose a complete lockdown. We want people to strictly follow the regulations.”

Meanwhile, it is to be noted that the state of Karnataka has imposed a lockdown from the night of April 27 till May 12 in an attempt to curb the spread of the Covid-19 infection.

Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa had said on April 26, “A COVID-19 curfew will be implemented in the state from tomorrow 9 pm for the next 14 days. Essential services will be allowed between 6 to 10 am. After 10 am, shops will close.”

The Chief Minister had also taken to his Twitter handle a couple of days ago to send a plea to his people to adhere to all coronavirus related restrictive measures and stay indoors.

He wrote in the post, “The 2-weeks strict rules to break the chain of Covid virus has begun. My appeal to everyone: follow the guidelines, cooperate with the govt, stay indoors, and step out only if it’s an emergency. Together, we all can defeat the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Dr K Sudhakar also adduced the instance of Maharashtra where a 44-day lockdown has helped curb the spread of the virus to a large extent and appealed to the people of Karnataka to follow the regulations instead of stepping out unnecessarily.

Karnataka has logged a single day surge in the number of fresh coronavirus cases with over 48,000 infections. Of these, more than half of the cases were in Bengaluru. The State now has more than four lakh active cases and a death toll of 15,523 since the outbreak of the pandemic last year.
