In the first week of December, new COVID cases increased in 16 districts of Karnataka. There have been more than 500 positive tests in the recent past, which is of great concern to the authorities.
Sources with the health department said that restrictions may be imposed during New Year’s and Christmas celebrations if this trend continues. There was a decline in the number of COVID cases by the first week of November, and zero cases were reported in several districts including the districts adjacent to Maharashtra, clearing the way for the lifting of all restrictions. As a result of the situation, the state government has again enacted restrictions.
As reported by the Department of Health and Family Welfare, Kodagu, Haveri, Chikkaballapura, Mandya, Mysuru, Davangere, and Uttara Kannada recorded the most cases of Covid. Covid cases have been reported in other districts at very low or single-digit levels. However, the number of Kovid cases is increasing fourfold in districts where the situation is under control.
As compared to the previous week (November 18 to 25), 2,202 more cases were registered between November 26 and December 3. The number of covid cases from 12-19 November was 1,588. As per the data available with the health department, there has been a 25 percent increase in cases in the last 15 days.
Shivamogga and Koppal have seen a four-fold increase. Shivamogga reported 28 cases of covid between 18-25 November. The number of cases rose 430 percent between November 26 and December 3. During the period between November 26 and December 3, Koppal reported four cases, down from zero between November 25 and 18. During the same period, Bengaluru Urban reported an increase in Covid cases from 995 to 1,167.
Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai told health department sources that the government had no agenda for banning activities and gatherings. After analyzing the state’s situation, he said he will make an appropriate decision in the coming days.
