Mangaluru, May 01, 2021: Expressing concern over the migration of Urban population to villages during COVID Curfew, district in-charge minister Kota Srinivas Poojary has asked the officials and public to be alert and take necessary precautions.

“Due to COVID curfew, people are moving to villages. They could spread COVID in rural areas. To control this and keep a strict vigil a taskforce should be formed in every village. Necessary steps should be taken to ensure the virus does not spread,” he said during a meeting at the DC office on Friday.

There is a need to increase the number of testing as the district is witnessing a surge in the number of COVID cases in the recent days.

The government has decided to install one more machine at District Wenlock Hospital in a day or two at a cost of ₹ 25 lakh. The district hospital already has two machines, and with the arrival of the new machine, it will increase to three.

“An additional machine will be installed at Wenlock Hospital shortly to ensure there is no delay in providing COVID test results. The machine will be installed in three days. This will also help in increasing the number of samples,” he said.
The Minister directed the officials to effectively enforce the COVID curfew.
