Stay put in districts, contain virus spread: CM writes to Ministers

April 22, 2021

Bengaluru: Amid raging COVID-19 cases in Karnataka, Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa yesterday directed all his Cabinet colleagues to work more pro-actively in districts they are in charge of to check the spread of the deadly disease.

The direction comes a day after Opposition leaders, at an all-party meeting, criticised the Government over its handling of COVID crisis. In a letter to the Ministers, the Chief Minister said the second wave of Coronavirus is taking the entire nation into its grip and all the districts need to take measures to contain it.

“Against this backdrop, you need to swing into action to prevent the spread of the disease in your district concerned, get in touch with the district authorities continuously and create awareness among people on controlling the spread of the virus,” Yediyurappa stated. The CM also asked the Ministers to ensure medical treatment is provided to those who have contracted the disease, so that situation does not go out of hand.
