Bengaluru: Despite a rise in the coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, no hospital in Bengaluru that treats COVID-19 has any nodal officer nor a help desk as per city mayor Gautham Kumar Jain. He blamed the officials for panic and spread and hoped at least now officials will take serious steps. As per sources, concerned about increase in virus cases, mayor Gautham had already asked chief minister BS Yediyurappa for a lockdown of Bengaluru for a few weeks and clamp restrictions in public movement to identify the cases and put them in isolation.
