Minister R. Ashok and BBMP Commissioner Gaurav Gupta at a meeting on COVID-19 management In Bengaluru on Monday.
Fears of a possible third wave of coronavirus have prompted the Karnataka government to consider imposing tight restrictions in the state after August 15, according to Revenue Minister R Ashok.
Basavaraj Bommai, the Chief Minister of Karnataka, will meet with experts in Bengaluru tomorrow to discuss the third wave of Covid-19, according to the state minister.
CM Bommai convened an emergency meeting with experts on Friday to discuss coronavirus and its potential impact on children during the third wave.
The Karnataka government chose to open schools on August 23rd, based on expert recommendations. However, immediately after returning from his official visit to Dakshina Kannada, the CM had an emergency meeting with them.
Experts have cautioned that because the youngsters are not vaccinated, they will most likely be impacted during the third wave of the ongoing pandemic, according to CM Bommai.
"We have already started the 'Vathsalya' scheme in Udupi and Haveri districts for complete monitoring of the children. We will organise pediatric health camps to check their nutritious strength, and will do all necessary treatment for lack of nutrition and undergrowth," the Karnataka CM stated.
"We have provided training to all concerned officers working on the scheme, and will try to protect the children from this virus. All district hospitals have been instructed to arrange pediatric ICU," Bommai also mentioned.
