Prime News, National, Karnataka, Health, Disease, Mysuru, December 3:- In view of the imminent threat of Omicron, the new variant of coronavirus, screening at the Karnataka-Kerala border has been heightened. Rigorous screening has been on at Bavali check-post in HD Kote taluk.
Travellers coming from Kerala are being tested through the mobile app. Even if the report is negative, the report is further scanned to check all the details of people. Action is being taken against those who try to enter the state with a fake negative report.
On earlier occasions, people from Kerala would try to sneak into Karnataka with fake certificates but this time, the district administration is not taking anything for granted. (MR/KS)
