Key COVID-19 indicators have continued to improve in Bengaluru a week after the Karnataka government introduced substantial lockdown relaxations for the first time since the onset of the devastating second wave of the pandemic. The government allowed relaxation from 5am- 9pm from July 4 after weeks of graded unlocking since mid-June. According to the BBMP, the number of positive cases, COVID-19 deaths, case fatality rate and positivity rate have all continued to drop, on a week on week basis. Even the total number of patients admitted to hospitals for COVID-19 treatment has come down. However, officials and experts have warned that the gains of the lockdown will be lost if the public fails to adhere to COVID-19 appropriate behaviour.
