COVID-19 restrictions, currently in effect in Karnataka, would be relaxed in a graded manner in four or five phases starting from June 14, state revenue minister R Ashoka said on Wednesday. The existing lockdown is scheduled to end on June 14, after being extended for seven more days earlier on June 7. Ashoka, who is currently the vice-chairman of Karnataka state disaster management authority (KSDMA), also said that the daily new infections in Bengaluru are still hovering around the 2,000-mark every day and it should fall below the 500-mark for an unlock.
