Mysuru: Deputy Commissioner Dr K C Bagadi Gautham on Monday clarified that “No Omicron cases are reported in Mysuru.” 

DC told media “we have enforced strict rules in the borders. As many as 168 vehicles have been sent back for not producing RT-PCR negative certificate.”

We have enforced strict Covid rules and those who are coming from Kerala and Maharashtra should produce mandatory Covid RTPCR negative report not less than 72 hours and vaccination certificate. We had sent back 168 vehicles for not submitting Covid negative reports.”

Across the district two lakh people are due to take second dose of Covid vaccine and one lakh in Mysuru City Corporation limits. Each constituency the due is about 30,000-40,000. We appeal people to vaccinate as soon as possible, without negligence. Vaccination is to avoid seriousness of the infection, less hospitalisation and negligible death, DC added.

Second dose vaccine hesitancy has increased and our staff is going door to door to ensure the jab, but the people in urban areas are neglecting, DC pointed.

If the government of india gives prior intimation to map foreign returnees,  we can identify and monitor them.

We will discuss with the Department of Public Instructions and take necessary steps regarding children’s care.

District administration has suggested the educational institutions to postpone or conduct virtual academic, cultural and religious programmes if necessary and manage with the less gathering, DC explained.
