Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (AM)

Udupi, May 23: Only three people tested positive in the district and not five as reported earlier on Saturday May 23. This was clarified by deputy commissioner G Jagadeesha.

The three have been identified as two men aged 40 and 49 and a 34-year-old woman. While the woman had returned from Maharashtra, the source of infection of both the men is yet to be confirmed.

A miscommunication from the health department to the district administration had led to the confusion.

    The pressure of opening up entry to all and influx of new cases on a day-to-day basis is revealing chinks in the working of the district officials. Such gross miscommunication between the health department and district administration regarding reporting of cases should not happen. It will cause confusion and worry among the public at large.

    Please take every step carefully and confidently. Our DC has done a wonderful job during this pandemic. Please don't let such mistakes put a black mark on your efforts.
