Mysuru-Bengaluru Highway a day before 35-hour curfew and on curfew day

July 5, 2020

The Mysuru-Bengaluru Highway witnessed heavy traffic jams on the evening of Saturday as many people were in a hurry to reach their destinations hours before the Sunday Curfew was imposed.

Also, the 6 pm to 5 am dusk to dawn curfew imposed in Mysuru forced people to leave their workplaces early.

Many stretches of the Highway near Columbia Asia Hospital, Siddalingapura and below the Varuna Aqueduct were filled with vehicles. There was a heavy movement of vehicles towards Mysuru city too.

Picture below shows the scene of the road during Sunday Curfew where there was literally no traffic, except for the movement of vehicles that supply essential commodities.

At a few places, Police had set up check points to strictly enforce the curfew.

    So, these many people are escaping the “curfew” and many will enter Bengaluru to see similar curfew imposed! They will come back with Covid-19 infections, as Bengaluru is infested with clusters of these infections, more than Mysuru, hospitals there turning away patients to die at home.The people of Mysuru. should do the same as the people of a village did, turning those who left Mysuru away, back to where they came from, until they produced Covid-19 free certificate.
    From what I hear, the Covid-19 spikes in Mysuru were from those who visited places away from Mysuru, such as Bengaluru.
    If the Covid-19 situation becomes worse in Mysuru, it may be the time to introduce border checks such as those we find at international borders, and control people entering into the City.
    Mysuru should not be treated as an extension of Bengaluru.
