Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru

Bengaluru, Jun 28: The state government has issued fresh guidelines for movement of persons from other states to Karnataka amid the rising cases of coronavirus.

The revised standard operating procedure (SOP) issued by the government states that persons arriving from Maharashtra shall be placed in 7-day institutional quarantine followed by 7-day home quarantine.

Also, persons coming from states other than Maharashtra shall be placed in 14-day home quarantine.

"The quarantine surveillance has further been augmented through application of technology and increase in number of surveillance team(s)," the order states.

The SOP for persons coming from other states to Karnataka had been issued earlier on June 3, and revised subsequently on June 15. Other than the above stated quarantine norms, the rest of the conditions for returnees remain the same as before.

    Why are paracemotal and cough syrups banned by the govt. Now during rainy seasons cough and cold are common and the people are finding difficult. Can the health authorities look into this.

    It's not banned but to be sold against prescription.Otherwise people like u neglect the cold and cough and avoid going to the doctor till last minute and the time u realise that it is covid-19 nothing can be done to save the life.Just realise this before blaming the Govt.

    This is absurd. While the epidemic disease is from the same virus all over it is disheartening to note only people from Maharashtra are not spared. Is there a political reason behind this.
