Bengaluru, Apr 16: The state government is mulling to implement strict regulations to curb people gathering in large numbers, to contain the spread of Covid-19.
Speaking to media in Bengaluru, Health and Medical Education minister Dr K Sudhakar said, "As the cases of Covid-19 are surging, the government will initiate strict measures to avoid large gatherings like marriages and mass gatherings. People gathering unnecessarily will be restricted and action will be taken against them in the upcoming days."
He also said that the final decision in this regard will be taken after April 18. He also appealed that people themselves should come forward to implement 'Janatha Curfew' voluntarily. “Avoid unnecessary public gatherings and cooperate with the government. The night curfew only cannot control the spread of the pandemic, but strict measures should be taken up to contain the spread of Covid-19,” he said.
He also made it clear that only 100 people will be allowed in indoor and 200 people in outdoor functions. In the cities, where the positive cases have increased, micro containment zones will be set up, he said.
