Bengaluru: Amid a dip in the state’s daily Covid-19 case count, the Karnataka government has further eased restrictions effective today and life seems to have returned to normalcy as theatres and cinema halls are allowed to open to 50% capacity.

Night curfew in Karnataka will now be from 10 pm to 5 am as the restrictions were eased.

Officials in the chief minister’s office (CMO) had asserted that Yediyurappa responded positively to the request of mall owners who had demanded permission to resume business activities.

Earlier on Friday, the state government had allowed the reopening of medical, dental colleges and allied healthcare academic institutions. However, only those candidates who have taken at least one dose of the COVID vaccine will be allowed to enter.

In the last 24 hours, the state logged less than 2,000 cases—1,869 to be specific and 42 fatalities, taking the tally and toll to 28.82 lakh and 36,121 respectively. As many as 3,144 patients recovered from the infection, taking the total number of those discharged to 28,16,013, leaving 30,082 active cases in the state, a health department bulletin said.
