Bengaluru: Karnataka CM Basavaraj Bommai said on Saturday that the coronavirus test positivity rate in Bengaluru is currently 0.66% and if this rises to 2%, then stricter rules will be imposed here.

Bommai further said, ” If oxygen beds are occupied up to 40%, then too stricter rules will be imposed in the city. These will be tracked daily. Testing and vaccination will be increased in Dakshina Kannada, Udupi, Hassan, Mysuru, Chikkamagaluru, Kodagu, Bengaluru Rural, Shivamogga and Chamarajanagar, where the TPR is high.”

“Schools will open in the state for classes 9-12 in districts with the positivity rate less than 2%. As TPR in border areas are higher, district-level COVID-19 management plans will be announced in the state depending on the test positivity rate and other factors,” he added.

Karnataka on Saturday logged 1,632 fresh COVID-19 cases and 25 deaths taking the total infections and fatalities to 29,28,033 and 36,958.

There were 22,695 active cases in the state while the recovery of 1,612 patients took the total recoveries to 28,68,351. The positivity rate for the day was 1.04 per cent and case fatality rate 1.53 per cent.

Dakshina Kannada district, which borders Kerala, remained the major COVID-19 hotspot. The district reported a maximum of 411 infections and seven fatalities, which was highest among all the districts.
