Bengaluru: Two municipal wards here would be sealed for 14 days in view of five coronavirus cases detected in the two areas, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike commissioner B H Anil Kumar said on Friday.

The wards are Bapuji Nagar and Padarayanapura.

“We will do it (seal) the two areas for that much time (14 days),” Kumar said.

Earlier speaking to reporters, he said people would not be allowed to venture out. If they violate the regulations, criminal cases would be filed against them, he said.

“We are pretty sure that people won’t defy the rule,” he said.

Besides these two areas, no other area has been chosen for total seal-down, Kumar clarified.

Mayor M Gautham Kumar said that the reason behind sealing the two wards is that these are thickly populated areas and people there were defying the lockdown.

“It was difficult to control people there,” the Mayor said.

According to the Palike officials, nobody would be permitted to venture out as the essential goods would be supplied at their doorstep.

The BBMP has built two entry and exit gates in these areas, which are in close proximity, he said adding that there would be a door-to-door screening of people living in the areas.

According to the bulletin issued by the BBMP commissioner on his Twitter handle on Thursday, 69 positive cases have come to fore in which 16 patients recovered completely till Thursday while there was one death.

As many as 2,490 persons were screened, of which 33 were referred for further tests, the regular bulletin issued by the BBMP said.
