Mysore/Mysuru: A 50-year-old man from Tamil Nadu (TN), who had come to city for some work at the industrial area last Saturday and stayed at his in-law’s house on Manasara Road in Ittigegud, has tested positive for COVID-19 last night. The patient has been shifted to the COVID Hospital on KRS Road here.

As the man had developed COVID-19 symptoms, he voluntarily went to a private hospital for a check up and the hospital’s management informed the District Administration about it.

Soon, the Health officials put him under Facility Quarantine at Basappa Memorial Hospital (BMH) on Hunsur Road, collected his throat fluids and sent it for testing. As the lab reports showed him to be COVID-19 positive last night, the patient was shifted to the COVID Hospital for treatment. There are 30 houses on Manasara Road, where the patient stayed. The entire stretch has been sealed down and the residents have been put under Home Quarantine. According to the May 21 order of the Deputy Commissioner, only the road where the house of COVID-19 patient is located has to be sealed down.

Meanwhile, the MCC staff have begun spraying disinfectant on the road and surrounding places of the house in which the patient was staying and the Health staff are monitoring the health of all those under Home Quarantine. 

MCC Development Officer Bharath, Nazarbad Inspector G.N. Srikanth and MCC Health Officers Dr. Jayanth and Dr. D.G. Nagaraj are supervising the disinfection process of the area.

    Stop People from infiltrating from neighboring states of Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Telengana and Kerala. Otherwise Mysore will become another Mumbai within the next two months.

  2. Hare Krishna! says:

    Your term “infiltrating” shows why Indians in one state fight with Indians in another state with hatred. Thanks to COVID-19, which has brought to the surface this despicable nature of Indians, who want to keep the divisions of Indians, in terms of language and cultural differences.
    So, in your independent India, ruled by your favourite PM and the President, Indians are not equal and cannot settle anywhere they like taking up jobs? So, a Telugu speaking Indian or a Tamil-speaking Indian is very different, and are the NEW UNTOUCHABLES in Karnataka and Mysuru, as for as you and other Kannadigas are concerned? Is that why Mahatma Gandhi fought to secure independence ?
    Do you think, it is alright, if Kannadigas can settle in Maharashtra and Mumbai as well as New Delhi, there are thousands of them living in these places and earning their livelihood; but people from these places cannot come and settle in Mysuru?
    Lastly, every educated Indian wants to emigrate to the Western countries, Following your logic, these Western countries should prevent them from doing so, and if they land, deport them immediately back to India. How does that sound to you?

    Hello Veera Kumar
    A news item in SOM says: “A 22-year-old youth, who was studying in Uttar Pradesh (UP) and returned to Nanjangud on June 1, has tested positive for COVID-19. He has been admitted to the COVID Hospital in Mysuru”
    According to your argument above, this youth “infiltrated ” into UP, and following your logic, he should not have been allowed to study in the UP!

    Will you please stop these kind of unnecessary discussions and think of supporting the country fighting Corona
    When Everything is globalisedwhy talk of local problems and fight in between. Every individual has right to live anywhere in the globe, why fight with these regional, city wise living rights.

  5. Strangeworld says:

    Hello Yoganath!
    “Every individual has right to live anywhere in the globe”
    Not true! You should have said, every Indian has a right to live and work anywhere in India.
    Globalised world, does not mean, an individual from a specific country has a right to live and work in another specific country, unless that destination country gives permission for that individual to enter, live and work.
    The only exception for the above are Jews scattered around the world. A Jewish person, living in a country outside Israel, has a right to come and settle in Israel as per the “Law of Return” enacted by Israel, soon after the emergence of that country. This is because of the sad history of the Holocaust.

  6. Strangeworld says:

    I should have added 2 more exceptions: 1. A person in an EU country has the right to live and work in another EU country. 2. There is arrangement of citizens of US and Canada, who can work in either country.

    There is no denial for people to work in places of their choice. Right now everything is done to control the pandemic started by Chinese. Hope people understand and coperate
