Karnataka CM B S Yediyurappa Friday evening, after meeting with cabinet colleagues and senior officials, announced a complete lockdown across the state starting Monday 6 am till 6 am on May 24, to arrest the spread of Covid-19. Karnataka, especially the capital city Bengaluru, is reeling under the second wave of Covid that has severely affected health care infrastructure where patients are struggling to get oxygen, ventilator, and ICU beds. On Friday, the state reported its highest single-day count of 592 Covid deaths. The guidelines stated: “Only flights and trains scheduled will continue to operate during this period. Flight and train tickets shall serve as the passes for movement of persons by personal vehicles/ taxis/cab aggregators/ autorickshaws to board flight and trains.”
