This was really bound to happen. We started with a night curfew in Bengaluru and six other cities the follow to a nice curfew across the state and weekend, curfews were also announced in fact, we can help you with a lot we can also just was lifted this morning.
So now this curfew for 14 days is really a desperate bid by the state government to try and control the numbers in Karnataka there has been falling tremendously.
