Strict vigil at Belagavi border checkposts: CM Bommai

BELAGAVI/BENGALURU:

Tightening restrictions on Maharashtra arrivals, the Karnataka government has directed that only those who have been double-vaccinated and are carrying a negative RT-PCR report will be allowed to enter the state. Justifying the move, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said on Sunday, “There has been a spike in Covid-19 and Omicron (variant) cases in the last one week. This is especially high in Maharashtra, with Mumbai worst-hit. We have issued instructions for strict vigil in the border districts as the region has heavy business interaction with Mumbai.”

Vijayapura vigil

Speaking to media persons at Belagavi airport, Bommai said, “Not only the Belagavi checkpost, even other checkposts around have been asked to tighten measures. Border areas of neighbouring Vijayapura district too have been asked to tighten vigil at checkposts. Around 11 checkposts have been put up in Vijayapura district. Though the tight measures may cause a bit of inconvenience to passengers, it is necessary in the interest of public health in Belagavi district.”

‘Health infra ready’

The CM added, “We should be prepared to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and also face any challenging exigencies. Oxygen supply companies have been contacted to ensure adequate and timely supply, unlike the shortages witnessed last time. District and taluk hospitals have been instructed to get their oxygen plants ready to function. Action has been taken to keep 4,000 oxygen beds ready. Indents are being prepared to procure an adequate stock of medicines.”
