Karnataka Covid news live: positivity up more than 10 times
Bengaluru: In some respite, the second wave of Covid-19 infections will begin to recede in Bengaluru — a hotspot in the country — from next week, projections made by experts advising the state government suggest. They say the capital city will see a 10% to 20% decline in fresh cases by May 8. April, which has been the worst month of the pandemic so far in Karnataka with the number of infections crossing five lakh, had a silver lining: For the first time since the outbreak, the state conducted more than 40 lakh tests in just one month. Kodagu, which virtually escaped unscathed during the first wave of the pandemic, is now facing a monumental problem as one in every four people tested in the district is returning positive.
