The number of fresh cases in Karnataka has been dropping since May 17th, prompting government officials to discuss the possible relaxation of curbs. Experts say relaxation is to happen in about 3-4 phases from June 7th, if the current trend of declining fresh cases continues. “Another extension of lockdown after June 7th may not be necessary”, says Dr. S Sacchidanand, chairman of the COVID-19 clinical experts’ panel.
