Bengaluru: The highest single day count of 592 COVID-19 deaths in Karnataka on Friday showed that clamping curfews were not effective and result-oriented steps like a complete 14-day lockdown imposed at the start of the pandemic were necessary, Health Minister Dr. K Sudhakar said.

“If we have to break the chain of infection then we have to initiate result-oriented measures like a 14-day lockdown imposed last year at the start of the pandemic The state has been witnessing a steep rise in COVID cases with a daily caseload of about 50,000 and fatalities are also going up at an alarming proportion. The active cases are close to 4. 5 lakh in the state.
