The organizations had planned to launch the campaign from in front of the residence of rationalist Prof K S Bhagwan at Udayaravi Road in Kuvempunagar in the city on Wednesday July 1. The police stopped the activists from doing so as prior permission had not been obtained.

Later, the programme was held in front of the house of K S Shivaramu, president of the above forum. The front yard of Shivaramu's house was sanitised as per Hindu customs with the help of cow dung and urine.

Dr V S Somashekhar Gowda, who is the force behind the 'Green Karnataka' concept, speaking after launching the campaign, recalled that the elders in the family had found a domestic solution to the plague which appeared in1968. "They tamed the plague by mopping the house floor with a mixture of dung, cow urine, turmeric and neem leaves. We should also bring coronavirus under control by using this method," he advised.

He said that the houses and surroundings should be kept clean and personal hygiene should be maintained to destroy coronavirus.
