ಅಲ್ಲದೇ ಇತ್ತೀಚೆಗೆ ನನ್ನನ್ನು ಹಿರೇಕೆರೂರು ಹಾಗೂ ಕೊಪ್ಪಳ ಭಾಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಭೇಟಿಯಾದ ಪ್ರಥಮ ಮತ್ತು ದ್ವಿತೀಯ ಸಂಪರ್ಕಿತರು, ಯಾರಿಗಾದರೂ ಕೋವಿಡ್ ಲಕ್ಷಣ ಕಂಡುಬಂದಲ್ಲಿ ಕೂಡಲೇ ಪರೀಕ್ಷೆಗೆ ಒಳಗಾಗಿ.— Kourava B.C.Patil (@bcpatilkourava) July 31, 2020

Primary and secondary contacts who met me recently in the Hirekerur and Koppal area, immediately get yourself tested. No one needs to worry, you have the confidence to fight against Covid, and let all your blessings and wishes be with me,” the minister said.
