“The measure was recommended because it has now been about two weeks since the festival season, the bypolls and the huge crowds which congregated for (actor) Puneeth Rajkumar’s funeral and yet, there has not been any substantial increase in new case case numbers. The test positivity rate remains low,” Dr P G Girish, director of the Directorate of Medical Education, reports the Deccan Herald.
