Covid-19 cases in Karnataka have been northbound for the past two weeks, with the state reporting 1,715 fresh infections on Sunday. Some 1,039 — or 60% — of the new cases were from Bengaluru city. The active Covid cases in the state have increased from 12,432 on Saturday to 13,494 on Sunday. Bengaluru alone has 9,300 active cases. Tourist footfall has dipped in the past week in Mysuru due to rising cases of Covid-19 and a fear of a second wave of infections. With the state government clamping down on fairs and temple car festivals due to a rise in Covid-19 cases, the question is whether Holi celebrations (March 28) would be allowed.
