Bengaluru: The number of coronavirus cases in Karnataka may double in the next 15 to 30 days and the coming two months would emerge as a big challenge for the government in tackling the pandemic, state Health Minister B Sriramulu has said.

However, there was no need for any panic and people should follow the COVID-19 related regulations to stay safe, he said in a series of tweets. As on Saturday, the cumulative tally of COVID-19 cases in the state touched 36,216, including 613 fatalities and 14,716 discharges.

“Lockdown has been announced in Bengaluru from Tuesday 8 pm for the next seven days. Abide by the regulations. Every day more than 2,000 cases of coronavirus are coming to fore,” Sriramulu said late Saturday.

“The number of coronavirus cases may double in the next 15 to 30 days in Karnataka. The next two months set to pose a big challenge before us,” he tweeted.

Asserting that the state government was initiating all measures to control the coronavirus, Sriramulu said, “There is no need to panic or lose hope.”
