The spread of the novel coronavirus in India has quickened in the last few days with new cases of Covid-19 and deaths reported every day. The epidemic has expanded its footprint in the country and has affected over 53 lakh people.
Yesterday, Prime Minister, Narendra Modi expressed his concerned about the rising Covid-19 cases in Karnataka. He mentioned that about 8 districts have got higher death rates and this may continue to rise.
Considering this, today morning, the Karnataka ministers seem to be discussing this issue in the assembly. Karnataka Minister, CT Ravi says that the possibility of another lockdown in the state is possible, looking at the current situation. This lockdown will surely help the people of Karnataka to be safe and avoid any sort of social gathering.
Interestingly, both the opposition and the ruling party in Karnataka agree to the planning of another lockdown in the state. Well! The final decision is yet to come, however, the glimpse of the idea looks satisfactory and safe.
There is no doubt in the fact that COVID cases in the state are increasing at a sharp rate with less number of recoveries. Even the hospitals that closed their doors for having no COVID patients a few weeks back are now full of patients with a long waiting list for the admission.
As the number of fresh Covid-19 cases and fatalities linked to the pandemic continues to surge in Karnataka, the number of active cases in the State exceeded a lakh on Wednesday with 9725 more people contracting the infection.
While 1,01,626 cases are termed active by the Health Department, 39,472 among these are in Bengaluru alone. Over 4.84 lakh people have tested positive for the infection since March 8 in the state.
Meanwhile, as the probe by the Central Crime Branch (CBB) of the Bengaluru City Police is still underway to unearth the more links from Sandalwood (Kannada film industry) to probable drug rackets in the city, actor Sanjjanaa Galrani was Wednesday remanded to judicial custody, till September 18.
