Although it has been predicted that next wave might impact children predominantly, there is no such evidence from other countries which have already undergone third wave

Bengaluru: Lifting all restrictions at one may trigger surge in cases. So the restrictions will be eased in a staggered manner and CM will take a final decision on the modalities of unlock, said Health and Medical Education Minister Dr K Sudhakar.

Speaking to media Sudhakar said, “some activities will be opened up and restrictions will continue on some activities. The advise of experts will be conveyed to CM and then CM will take a final decision after discussion with senior ministers. As per experts’ opinion, if positivity rate is less than 5% and the cases are less than 5,000 restrictions can be lifted,” he said.

There is no confusion regrading lifting restrictions. Other states like Maharashtra, have opened up only after reduction in cases. If you compare with other states, the third wave has relatively subdued quickly in our state. Although it has been predicted that next wave might impact children predominantly, there is no such evidence from other countries which have already undergone third wave.

Even AIIMS, Delhi Director Dr Randeep Guleria had said that “there is no data, either from India or internationally, to show that children will be seriously infected in any next wave of COVID-19. 60-70% of the children, who got infected and got admitted in hospitals during the second wave in India, had either co-morbidities or low immunity, and healthy children recovered with mild illness without need for hospitalization. However we are ensuring preparedness to protect our children,” he said.

2,281 cases of black fungus are reported in the state and 1,948 are getting treatment. 102 people have already recovered,” he said.
