Bengaluru: Karnataka Transport Minister Laxman Savadi on Wednesday clarified that Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation and Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation will operate bus services during night curfew.

On Wednesday the state government announced imposition of a night curfew from 11 pm on December 24 till 5 am on January 2 in the wake of the detection of a new strain of coronavirus in the UK.

Apart from bus services, autorickshaws and cabs too will operate during night curfew, said Savadi.

A press release by the government of Karnataka stated a new variant of SARS-CoV 2 has been detected in the United Kingdom, which is spreading and growing. “It has also been reported that some recent returnees from the UK to the state have tested positive for the COVID-19. However, the samples of these patients are undergoing further tests to determine if they have contracted the new variant of the virus.”

The movement of individuals shall remain strictly prohibited, except for essential activities. Midnight Christmas Mass, Christmas and New Year celebrations shall be permitted as per guidelines issued earlier.
