Bengaluru: The state government is not thinking of imposing a lockdown in the state, but precautions to control the spread of the coronavirus will be taken, said Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr. K Sudhakar.
Speaking to reporters here on Friday, the minister said, “Restrictions are required to curb the spread of the virus.” We need to control the COVID positivity rate. If the positivity rate jumps to 20%, then it would be difficult to manage the disease. So restrictions were imposed to restrict it to 7 or 8 percent.
He said Bengaluru Urban, Bengaluru Rural, Mysuru, Kolar, Udupi, and Mandya were witnessing high positivity rates and a meeting would be held with the district administration of these districts to reduce the positivity rate. He said the state’s positivity rate touched 3.95% and, in connection with the increasing cases of COVID, a meeting with senior officers would be conducted on Friday to take steps to curb the spread of the virus.
