Lockdown in Bengaluru may be reimposed if COVID-19 cases continue to rise: Karnataka Minister

Lockdown in Bengaluru may be imposed in the days to come if coronavirus cases continue to rise,  state Health and Medical Education Minister K Sudhakar said. Karnataka has been witnessing a huge surge in COVID-19 cases and the state government has imposed several restrictions in an attempt to contain the spread. 

Speaking to reporters, the minister asserted that the government will have no other option than to impose a lockdown if the numbers of cases don’t fall. The minister also expressed disappointment over people’s complacent behaviour, saying that despite repeated appeals, people are not following the COVID-19 guidelines like wearing masks or maintaining social distancing.

Several states have already imposed a lockdown or partial lockdown. It will become inevitable for the government to consider a lockdown if the cases go further up, the minister told a news outlet. He added that the government is seeking the public’s support to bring the cases under control.
