mysuru: Minister: No need to close tourist sites | Mysore News


Mysuru: Mysuru District Minister, ST Somashekar has said that the Covid situation in Mysuru does not justify the district administration closing tourist spots.
He told reporters: “Given the prevailing situation, there are no plans to close tourist places in the city and region. Covid rules have been enforced in tourist places, which makes it safe for travellers.”
The minister admitted the positivity rate was skyrocketing but said it was under control. “The situation has not reached a point where we have to close tourist sites. Hospitalization or death rates are low although the number of positive cases is high,” he said, adding that the decision to close schools will be taken by officials of the Public Instruction Department in accordance with local requirements.
Meanwhile, Senior Congressman Tanveer Sait said he had instructed the minister to focus on reducing the positivity rate in the Narasimharaja assembly segment. The health infrastructure there has been improved, as has the testing capacity. Those infected were advised to seek treatment at the CCC or be isolated at home, he said.
In view of the weekend curfew relaxations, Mysuru Zoo and Karanji Nature Park will be open to the public from January 22 every Saturday and Sunday and remain closed to visits every Tuesday, a statement said. .
