The government of Karnataka will start to relieve the state's lockdown in phases, the report says.
Karnataka Minister R Ashoka said on Wednesday that, after the completion of COVID-19 induced lockdown, the state might move for unlocking in four to five phases from June 14. "First will be timings, now the relaxation that is there between 6 to 10 am, may get extended further, also those who go for walk at parks may get some relief..all this is subjected to a final decision by the Chief Minister. Lockdown will not be relaxed at one go," R Ashoka said.
Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa is expected to convene, deliberate, and make the decision at a meeting of ministers, officers, and experts in a day or two. There are still 2,000 new cases per day in Bengaluru.
R Ashoka said, "Keeping the number of deaths and new cases in mind and aimed at bringing down the COVID infections further, lockdown will not be relaxed at one go."
Initially, the Karnataka Government announced a "close-down" of 14 days from April 27 but then enforced a full lock-out from May 10 to May 24 since the instances of COVID continued to climb. It was further extended to June 7 and again to June 14, on the recommendations of specialists.
