“I would also like to appreciate the efforts of the Karnataka government in handling the Covid-19 situation,” said PM Modi.

“Virus may be the invisible enemy but our corona warriors are invincible and in the battle against the invisible versus invincible our medical workers are sure to win,” Modi said while inaugurating through a video link the silver jubilee celebrations of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences here.

Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa, Governor Vajubhai Vala, Medical Education Minister K. Sudhakar, Deputy Chief Minister C. N. Ashwathnarayan were among those who participated in the event.

On Sunday, the southern state”s Covid tally crossed 3,000-mark to settle at 3,221 cases, significantly lower than many other states.

Had it not been for several returnees from others state”s, especially from Maharashtra, who account for a lion”s share of new infections, Karnataka”s tally would have been significantly lower.
