Will restrictions be lifted in Karnataka after June 7?

Prime News, State (Bengaluru), May 25:- If the number of coronavirus cases continues to drop further, the BS Yediyurappa-led Karnataka government may allow some relaxations in the statewide lockdown after June 7. If reports are to be believed, CM Yediyurappad has asked government officials and experts to prepare a plan for the lifting restrictions in a phased manner. The state is expected to witness unlocking in more than 3 phases.

Dr. S Sacchidanand, chairman of Covid-19 clinical experts’ panel asserted that another extension of lockdown after June 7 may not be necessary. “It was projected that the second wave would recede by June end. Going by the present trend, we can expect it to weaken much earlier.”
On the other hand, state minister Aravind Limbavali said that strict implementation of the lockdown has resulted in controlling the situation to some extent, but it would be too early to talk about lifting the curbs. “We should ramp up our medical infrastructure required for the expected third wave”, he told a daily.
