MK Digital Line
Full lockdown will be enforced every Sunday in Bengaluru, the Karnataka government has decided after a meeting called by Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa to discuss the coronavirus situation. 

No activity will be allowed on Sundays, except essential services. Monday onwards, night curfew will start from 8 pm from the earlier 9 pm, but the end time of 5 am will remain, officials said.

The commissioner of the civic agency BBMP will work to set up more wholesale vegetable markets to avoid crowding at grocery stores across the city.

The state government asked officers to have a centralised bed allocation system to speed up hospitalisation of COVID-19 patients.

The Chief Minister asked the authorities to reserve wedding halls, hostels and other institutions in Bengaluru to be converted into COVID-19 care centres and to use railway coaches with beds as additional facilities.

The centre has deployed 15 teams, consisting of public health experts, epidemiologists and other specialists, to support states in the battle to contain a seemingly relentless wave of COVID-19 infections, Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan was informed during the 17th Group of Ministers (GoM) meeting held Saturday afternoon.

India has recorded over five lakh confirmed cases since the outbreak began in China in December last year. Of these, 1.98 lakh are active cases and 15,685 are deaths linked to the infectious virus.
