Mangaluru, Jul 30: As the districts in the state along Kerala border are witnessing a steady increase in the number of Covid-19 cases, Dakshina Kannada deputy commissioner (DC) Dr Rajendra K V and police commissioner N Shashi Kumar visited Talapady check post to review the Covid situation on Friday July 30.

Speaking to media persons, DC Dr Rajendra said, “As Covid-19 positive cases are increasing in Kasargod district and in Kerala state. Even in Dakshina Kannada, the positivity rate is increasing. Hence, as a precautionary measure, to contain the spread of the virus, we are thinking of imposing additional restrictions after holding a meeting. We have arranged checking facilities for those who come to the district on a regular basis. Those who have not taken vaccines or do not have RT-PCR negative report will be checked at the check post. We have arranged testing spots at four borders of the district. As cases are increasing, I visited the check posts to review the situation to implement additional restrictions. We have organised a meeting with the senior officials today. Along with that, testing will also be increased. We are thinking of implementing additional restrictions and will also recommend the same to the government. We will also discuss the issue in tomorrow's district disaster management authority meeting."

The DC also said that a clear statement will be issued after holding meetings with the health and other senior officials on imposing additional restrictions on people visiting religious centers, inter-state bus movements, and other mass gatherings. “Every day we conduct 7,000 to 8,000 tests in the district. The administration will increase testing. As cases are increasing in Kerala, the district administration is taking proper measures to contain the spread of the virus," he said.

Police commissioner N Shashi Kumar said, "Under the limits of Mangaluru commissionerate, six check posts have been set up to check the spread of Covid-19 virus. These check posts function 24*7 in three shifts. Additional staff have been deployed at the Talapady check post as the number of vehicles travelling on these roads are more. We have set up the check posts at railway stations and internal roads connecting Kerala. As the positivity rate in the district is on the rise, the area officials have insisted on additional restrictions to contain the spread of the virus. In future, we will effectively implement the guidelines directed by the district administration or by the state government. More importance will be given to adhere to the Covid-19 appropriate behaviour in public places and establishments. The public should act with more responsibility."

    Because of RTPCR tests which detects both flu and Corona as Covid 19, Wuhan (China) has almost conquered the world spreading virus further across world through so called spike generating and spreading also corrupting immune system vaccines. Now slowly going out of control. This is how elites and communist chinese misused from childhood brainwashed cure called 'vaccines' to fool even the wise! Not only that these elites and communist chinese trying to change basic human DNA also using high tech nano particle (pfiizer) and luciferase quantum dot technology based, mobile app readable (moderna) trying to make them easily controllable transhumans or technology merged with humans with the help of AI, 5G, Big Brother advanced surveilance technology and beast super computer in the name of seemless travel, business and faster financial transaction. Soon vaccine passport or a chip in the body containing all details for travel, shop and business, it is not surprising as mentioned in Book of Revelation ch 13:16-17. This communist control they are spreading everywhere to enslave in the name of freedom from covid, free global travel and business same time trying to decimate population for easier and better control and to bring their new world order as per their preplan event201

    People are too relaxed, many are wearing masks on their neck. Some don't even wear masks in the city. Running to Talapady and blaming the other state won't solve the issue

    How to create another wave action plan getting implemented step by step is evident by using a fake test derecognised by US FDA. All govts are enjoying authoritarian powers and they don't want to let them soon until people wake up and expose the pandemic hoax .

    Really alarming situation... SC rapped the Kerala government for bowing to traders’ pressure by granting relaxations ahead of Bakrid.
