Karnataka has been witnessing a steady decline in their Covid-19 positivity rate with the figures falling below 5 per cent across all of their 31 districts. The state government is expected to soon bring into effect Unlock 4.0 wherein they are planning to do away with night curfews and even allow the reopening of pubs from July 19.

The last time the government had eased lockdown measures was during Unlock 3.0 implemented on July 5 when weekend curfew was lifted and shopping malls were allowed to open up again. The fourth level of relaxation came only after the TPR slid below the 5 per cent mark that the government had earmarked.

The state government has also made special provisions to reach out to children especially in villages who are unable to have online lessons and are also deprived of an access to a television. The state Education Minister along with several educational experts and also the advisor to the Chief Minister, is working on a project that will turn Gram Panchayat libraries into digital classrooms.

The possibility of a third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic hitting soon has led the government in Karnataka to draw a plan of action to deal with an upcoming crisis situation. The state health commissioner said they are working of ramping up the number of beds and oxygen capacity in government hospitals.

The High Court in Karnataka has turned down the PIL against the decision of the state government to hold SSLC exams in physical form for students of class 10th from July 19.

The High Court has also directed authorities to hand over the 354 acres and 10 guntas land that was held off Magadi Road by Jamnalal Bajaj Seva Trust as ‘excess land’ under Karnataka Land Reforms Act-1961, with immediate effect dubbing it “reprehensible”.

Over the past few years, government schools in Karnataka have been seeing a slow erosion in the number of students enrolling with them as more and more parents are opting for private institutions. To amend matters, some concerned individuals are offering incentives to these defecting parents to lure them back into having their wards admitted to government schools.

In the last 24 hours the state recorded 1,386 new Covid-19 cases, 3,204 discharges and 61 deaths.
