Bengaluru cases surge again
The day’s fresh cases from Bengaluru included a senior specialist with a private hospital who is in ICU and a one-year-old girl from Peenya, besides five pregnant women from Chamarajpet, a 22-year-old transgender from Andhra and two cancer patients.
A 50-year-old health worker from Kaggalipura, a containment zone, is among the new cases. A 37-year-old man from Marathhalli who voluntarily underwent tests has been found positive for Covid-19.
The state’s bulletin continued to report deaths days after they occurred. Sources attributed delay to lack of coordination. “Covid-19 designated hospitals must inform the district administration (BBMP) about every death. There are gaps in coordination,” said a senior officer.
