The day also saw 176 patients getting discharged after recovery, while 268 were undergoing treatment in the intensive care unit of various designated hospitals.

As Karnataka, especially capital city Bengaluru continued to break its own records of statistics related to the coronavirus pandemic over the weekend, the government is now on its toes to ensure steps to contain the same.

The state government decided to reimpose Sunday curfews from July 5. The government also decided to extend the timing of night curfew (from 9 pm to 5 am) from 8 pm to 5 am with effect from June 29. Besides, all government offices shall remain closed on all Saturdays from July 10.
