On Sunday Bengaluru reported 2,004 Covid-19 cases with seven deaths, taking the tech city’s daily infections over 2,000 after four months.
Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar has hinted at stricter rules in the city after the second wave has resulted in a surge in positive cases.
Most of the infected people are residents of apartments, and whole families are getting infected during this second wave. “People have failed to maintain social distancing at homes which is resulting in entire families getting infected,” said Prasad.
