BENGALURU:

Faced with the triple whammy of increasing corona infections, a continuing flow of returnees and a corresponding healthcare infrastructure crunch, the Karnataka government has yet again tweaked the quarantine rules.

Now, travellers from Maharashtra will have to undergo a 14-day home quarantine, as opposed to the earlier requirement of institutional quarantine. The bordering state, and in particular the country’s financial capital Mumbai, continues to have the highest number of corona cases and fatalities nationally.

Not just a shortage of beds, Karnataka’s healthcare system is taking a beating as hospital staff, especially nurses in private hospitals, are reportedly refusing to attend duty out of fear of getting infected themselves.
