The Karnataka chief minister’s remarks came moments ahead of the key meet with expert committee members on the COVID-19 situation in the state. A decision on the continuation of weekend curfew in Karnataka will be made at the meeting.
Many legislators, MPs and organisations are set to convey their opinion on the issue. A suitable decision would be taken based on the views of the experts and the trend of the prevailing third wave of Covid, Bommai said.
“The state government is doing its duty in the form of ‘Thrividha Dasoha’ of providing Anna (food), ‘Ashraya’ (shelter) and ‘Akshara’ (education) for the deprived,” Chief Minister Bommai said.
With a surge in cases, the government had last week decided to extend the existing COVID curbs such as night curfew and the weekend curfew till the end of January. According to experts, the coronavirus cases in Karnataka are likely to peak by end of this month and early February.
