Udupi: Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP and senior BJP leader Shobha Karandlaje called for a complete lockdown to combat the steep rise in Covid-19 cases here on Thursday May 6.
Karandlaje said that the number of cases of the virus is increasing in Udupi District and a Covid-19 curfew is needed to control the numbers. She added that only essential services should be allowed to operate during the curfew and people should co-operate.
“If people continue to move freely out, Covid cannot be controlled. Wedding ceremonies, religious events at temples and everything is going on. The more the people will socialize the more the virus will spread,” Shobha said.
“People from other cities like Bengaluru and Mumbai are coming to Udupi district. They should be tested immediately on their arrival. Home quarantine has also been made compulsory,” she said.
