As Karnataka overtakes UP, another lockdown in Bangalore

After Pune, it is now the turn of Bengaluru to go in for a fresh round of complete lockdown. The city would be shut down for a week between July 14 and July 22, in a bid to contain the rapid spread of the novel Coronavirus that has made Karnataka the fastest-growing state in the country right now. Bengaluru had been experimenting with lockdowns during the weekends earlier as well. But there has been no respite in the growing number of infections in the state. On Saturday, the state reported close to 2,800 new cases and overtook Uttar Pradesh to become the state with the fifth-highest caseload in the country. Karnataka has so far seen 36,216 people getting infected with the virus. Only Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Delhi and Gujarat have more infections.
