Karnataka mandates 7-day home isolation for Covid positive patients

From now on, everyone who tests positive for COVID-19 must spend seven days alone at home while their symptomatic primary contacts are tested.

In light of the discovery of the JN.1 subvariant, a cabinet subcommittee on Covid 19 convened on Tuesday, led by Health Minister Dinesh Gundu Rao, made a resolution to this effect.

Bengaluru is home to 57 of the 74 new cases that were recorded on Tuesday. Two deaths linked to Covid were also recorded by the state.

Workers in the public and commercial sectors who are placed in home isolation are entitled to a leave of absence of seven days. Physicians and personnel from Namma clinics and UPHCs will visit all home-bound and general ward COVID-19 admissions. Every day, some 5,000 Covid tests need to be completed.
