Bengaluru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has reiterated that the government will not make hasty decisions when it comes to imposing tight restrictions in the state to contain the spreading of Coronavirus infection.
He said that there is no need for such tight restrictions looking at the positivity rate. The experts also echoed the same views and there is no need to panic about Covid new variant Omicron but taking precautions is important. The government will be intensifying Covid vaccine drive and special camps would be held across the state like it did in the month of September.
Speaking to reporters after chairing a cabinet meeting, the Chief Minister stated that, for the time being, no night curfews will be implemented in the state to combat the spread of the Omicron strain of the Coronavirus. The decision on a reduced Christmas and New Year’s celebration will be made next week.
He stated that, based on the state’s positivity rate, specialists have stated that there is no reason to panic about the Omicron variant of the virus, but precautions must be taken. As a result of a few cluster cases of infection reported from hostels, special guidelines will be published for the hostels.
He stated that regardless of their Covid immunisation certificate or Covid infection negative report, Kerala students must undertake an RTPCR test.
