Bengaluru, Nov 30: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai reiterated for the second time that there is no question of imposing lockdown in the State and appealed to the people to ignore rumour mongering as normal life must go on.

Speaking to reporters near his residence on Tuesday, he made it clear that the State Government has no proposal whatsoever of clamping lockdown and urged the people not to pay heed to rumours.

However, he asked the people to strictly follow the Covid norms in public places.

Institutions too need to function responsibly by adhering to the norms at programmes conducted by them, Bommai said.

The Chief Minister said the State Government is keeping strict vigil against Omicron, the new variant of Covid virus.

Meanwhile, precautions against the Delta variant too is being tightened.

The State Government is tackling the issue on two fronts, he said explaining that test swab samples in suspicious cases had been sent to NCBS for Genome sequencing to ascertain the exact variant.

International passengers are being strictly screened at the airports. Those who were in contact with them are also being traced and tested, he said.

The State government has issued the guidelines for setting up clusters where a spurt in the cases had been reported.

Those in the clusters are being tested again 7 days after they get a positive report of the first test. About 4000 persons have been tested at SDM College in Dharwad.

Similar tests are on at clusters in Mysuru, Hassan and Anekal in Bengaluru, Bommai said.

The Chief Minister later met Jnanapeeth Award winning writer Dr Chandrashekar Kambara and held cordial discussions with him.

    AJ you are 100 % correct. Why is govt putting our children at risk. Online classes and online exams are working very well in schools. Please do not spoil and torture our children for the sake of those mafias. The children are our future leader. HELP OUR CHILDREN, DON'T KILL THEM.

    Agreed... Lockdown not required.... Sametime why you playing on small children future.... Do you think it's really need to open the school in such crucial time... There was a huge success in online classes...... Parents and teachers are purchased the cellphones and laptops.... Once again I repeat please do not bow to private school mafia.... Small kids traveling in vans in mass quantity.... They may carry the virus from their parents or dependents.... It may spread fast.... Couple of months before there was a report that next virus may attack kids.... Why there was no study done.... If anything wrong happens public will blame you siir.... PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE....
