Mangaluru, Oct 17: People of the city and elsewhere in Dakshina Kannada should have obtained both the doses of anti Covid vaccination without fail. Those without vaccination cannot enter the malls or cinema theatres.
This decision will be implemented strictly and the officials will keep an eye on people without vaccination and take steps against them.
Initially, because of mistaken notions, many had dithered from getting vaccinated. During the coronavirus second wave, most had volunteered to get vaccinated. People's representatives, organizations etc also took interest, organized camps and vaccinated as many people as possible. Many organizations also made vaccination a compulsory requirement. Because of these things, the district showed good progress in vaccination. But the officials have observed that many have been showing disinterest in getting vaccination. That is why these instructions are being implemented strictly.
Even though Covid positive cases are under control in the city and the district, there is still some infection. There is the risk of the situation turning worse during the festival season. The city corporation therefore wants to get rid of this fear about the possible third wave. The task of identifying those who have not obtained vaccines and ensuring that they get vaccinated is being conducted now. Vaccination Melas have been arranged. After October 16, people moving around without the record of vaccinations will be questioned by the officials.
The deputy commissioner of Dakshina Kannada district, Dr Rajendra K V, has given permission to run multiplexes, cinema halls and theatres with 100 percent capacity. However, only those who have obtained both the doses of the vaccine will be allowed inside.
