732 COVID-19 cases in Bengaluru; mayor says no cause for panic

Three wards in Bengaluru reported double figures in the number of COVID-19 cases. The mayor says enough measures will be taken to contain the spread of the infection.

The COVID-19 situation in India and neighbouring Tamil Nadu is alarming. Taking a cue from the increasing numbers, the BBMP took measures to ensure there is no community spread of the infection.

 At present, the city has 732 active cases and the big concern is only with Padarayapura, SK Garden and Mangammanapalya as these wards have touched double figures with respect to the number of COVID-19 cases.

 In Padarayanpura there are 70 cases, SK Garden has 24 and Mangammanapalya has reported 15 cases.

 The mayor says measures like tracing coronavirus positive patients and their contacts, putting people with symptoms and those with travel history in quarantine has helped the BBMP in containing the spread.
