No night curfew in Karnataka to curb Covid-19: BS Yediyurappa

Bengaluru/UNI: Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa on Friday ruled out the possibility of imposing night curfew to curb the spread of Covid-19 pandemic during the new year celebrations.

"There is no proposal before the State Government to impose night curfew as recommended by the Covid-19 Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to arrest the spread of pandemic during the New Year celebration. For now, there are no such plans,” Yediyurappa told reporters while replying to a question.

In an advisory submitted to the government on November 30, the TAC had warned that a second wave of Covid-19 was expected during January-February 2021.

The TAC has recommended banning the New Year celebrations, holding parties from December 26 to January 1, while pitching for the imposition of night curfew (8 pm to 5 am) during this period to prevent people from gathering. It specifically sought a ban on celebrations in resorts, hotels and on Bengaluru’s high-streets such as MG Road, Brigade Road and so on.
