Bengaluru: Karnataka Revenue Minister R Ashoka on Monday indicated that more stringent rules are likely to be put in place after July 7 to control the spread of COVID-19 in the city and other parts of the state, amid spike in cases.

According to reports, the government was waiting for SSLC (class 10) exams to end on July 4 to take some stringent
measures to control the infections.

“For everything, I think you will have to wait till July 7 in the interest of the children. After July 7 Chief Minister will take decision to bring in several changes,” Ashoka said in response to a question about imposing restrictions like on inter-state travel, among others, amid increase in cases.

The minister, who is also in-charge for Covid management in Bengaluru, said according to reports from experts in July and August cases will increase the world over, in India and similarly in the state and Bengaluru also, and in
this regard, precautionary measures will be taken.

Following the recent spike in cases, there was speculation last week that the government may reimpose lockdown and few ministers had even indicated about this, but the government subsequently ruled out any such measure stating that improving state’s economy and carrying out developmental activities were equally important.
