Meanwhile, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa recently declared its Bal Seva scheme for the welfare of children who lost their parents due to Covid. The CM stated that Rs 3,500 will be given out to the extended guardians or caretakers of the orphaned children every month as financial assistance.
Any child with no guardian at all will be put in State-run Child Care Institutions. The education of the children will also be taken care of and they will be admitted to the Model Residential Schools. The announcement from the Karnataka government came after PM Modi's welfare for children announcement.
Seeking the public's support, Bommai added, “The positivity rate and the number of cases in the state have declined, and if every citizen supports, we can control the infection.”
The Karnataka government had initially announced a 14-day 'close down' from April 27 but has now imposed a lockdown in the state till June 7 owing to the rising number of infections. The total number of active cases in Karnataka is 350,087 while 21,89,064 people have been discharged so far. The death toll in the state has gone up to 28,298.
