Udupi, May 22: Three people tested positive for coronavirus in Udupi on Friday May 22.

All the three had returned from Maharashtra. Two of them are males aged 31 and 55 while the woman is aged 48.

The 55-year-old man and 48-year-old woman are husband and wife. The 31-year-old man is their relative. All hail from Byndoor.

All of them were under quarantine in Kundapur and now shifted to Kundapur COVID hospital for treatment.

As many as 319 primary contacts and 179 secondary contacts of the three positive patients have been quarantined.

Looking at the rising coronavirus cases, the 85-bed taluk hospital in Karkala will be declared a COVID hospital. There are discussions of making community health centre in Nitte a COVID hospital. The deputy commissioner will make announcements about the same on Saturday.

If there are high risk cases like old age people with respiratory issues they will be treated at Dr TMA Pai Covid hospital.

    I have learnt from reliable sources that the people recently arrived from other states and gulf countries, who are accommodated at a Kundapur are freely roaming outside for morning walk, breakfast, tea/coffee and other food intake. You should remember that you have been allowed to come into our District on compassionate grounds. Having taken benefit of this opportunity, it is your duty to avoid spreading infection in our town. Have some conscience and stayb inside your rooms till the end of your quarantine period.

    Time to accept it and test them and place them under quarantine centres. Spread awareness and it should be created on T.V and Radio Channels in local level and in languages also without creating panic with citizens. That is the only way. Blame game won't work. It can contact or infect to anybody without caste,creed or riligion. So beware of humanity and treat everyone as human beings first. Rest all comes later.

    If we comment on seal the border few people get angry. Because they need to blame on gulf returnees only.
