Coronavirus: Nine districts in Karnataka including DK to shut down till Mar 31

As many as nine districts across Karnataka, including Dakshina Kannada, will be completely shutdown except for essential services until March 31.

The move comes in the wake of a spurt in coronavirus cases across the country, which have crossed well over 300. On Sunday March 22, two more deaths were reported, one each in Mumbai and Bihar.

Apart from Dakshina Kannada, lockdown has been ordered in Bengaluru Urban, Bengaluru Rural, Kalaburagi, Mysuru, Kodagu, Chikkaballapur, Dharwad and Belagavi districts.

Essential services like pharmacies, ambulance, groceries and milk will not be affected.

For the next one week, bus services will also be suspended, including inter-service buses between six districts.

Companies have been told to ask their employees to work from home.

All state governments have been issued orders allowing only essential services in about 75 districts across the country. It was decided at a meeting here on Sunday morning with chief secretaries of all states by the cabinet secretary Rajiv Gauba and the principal secretary to the Prime Minister P K Misra.

"The state governments may expand the list depending on their assessment of the situation. It was noted that several state governments have already issued orders in this regard."

The chief secretaries said that there is overwhelming and spontaneous response to the call for 'Janata curfew' given by the Prime Minister on Thursday.

As many as 13,049 people have lost their lives across the globe and the deadly virus has affected 3.7 lakh people.

The number of coronavirus-affected people in India reached 324 on Sunday with reports of six deaths. In view of the need to contain the spread of COVID 19, it was agreed that there is an urgent need to extend the restrictions on the movement of non-essential passenger transport including inter-state transport buses till March 31, 2020, a Cabinet note said.

Besides, some important decisions were taken in the meeting that includes suspension of all train services till March 31, including suburban rail services. However, goods trains are exempted.

Inter state passenger transport will also be suspended till March 31.

    I am new in India..... I feel Indians got habits of spitting nowhere even they will sit in the bus and spit outside and spray it everyone. Government must penalize such people. Dresses were passed on others unknowingly

    Look at the irony.

    UK wanted to separate itself from EU. Trump wanted to build wall. Modi wanted CAA. NRC ..all in the name of patriotism. Isolating people to people.

    Almighty showed he can put his plans strongly and more effectively.

    Today individuals around the world isolating themselves, even with no contact with own family because of CORONA.

    Yet we are such fools to clap for leadership instead of hardworking health workers.

    Passengers from the airport only needs to be put in quarantine. I think people escape the screen test from detecting fever by eating dolo 650 in the airport before boarding the flight. Can't trust a single passenger and then put others life at risk. Ban all travel or quarantine all passengers before letting them go

    Dear Sir,
    The govt has taken a good initiative to fight against the COVID19. Its not only the responsibility of the Govt to fight against the disease but it also the responsibility of our people to join hands together, and I personally found that in-spite of imposing 144 section in Dakshin Kannada in some places like Surathkal still many people are gathering and making this scenario more critical. Hence I request all the people of our Mangalore to stay at home and dont come out unless and until its emergency.

    Harishere, We don't need money for distribution to people directly, need of the time is new hospital or separate isolation hospital especially for corona virus affected people. Look at the China.... within 10 days, they constructed or we can say, prepared one hospital with 1,000 beds.... Can we do that in India??? That's the problem in India... Even if few State Govt initiate the noble measure.... our own people will start... like..... why in our area? why in my land? why they need 500 crores rupees, etc etc.

    Probably we all get a chance to see the videos where many bhakts are clapping from their balcony. But none get a chance to see their Guru's clapping. Please mind well that he doesn't do what he says...he was just checking out of curiosity till date how many bhakts are left. He is always smarter than Bhakts. So please Just maintain social distancing and take care of you and your family. That's most important. Be safe and be healthy.

    There was a time people leaving villages and running to cities. Today they are leaving cities and running to villages to avoid coronavirus.

    What a change!

    I suggest those people should be stopped from entering villages to avoid spreading of coronavirus in the villages

    First block people coming from abroad. If you bring them then , even if you quarantine them in your facility, people who giving service to them like Doctors, Nurses.,laundry man, milk man, food supplier, servents all will be in danger. They can be a carrier..

    Section 144 does not ban you using your vehicle and travelling.
    It bans assembly of 5 or more people in a public place.
