Covid curbs: Karnataka, TN bar on entry from M'rashtra, Kerala
Karnataka and Tamil Nadu have made an RT-PCR negative test report mandatory for entry into the States from covid-infested Maharashtra and Kerala. Karnataka has made the test certificate mandatory even if one has received full vaccination. Kerala has registered an alarming TPR of 12.5%. A TPR is a crucial statistical metric that almost flawlessly indicates the extent of spread of the virus in a selected region.

NEW DELHI, Aug 2: In view of a third wave threat of Delta covid, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu have imposed restrictions on travellers from Maharashtra and Kerala, which have become India's covid hotspots, while cases are declining in other parts of the country. Both the States have made a negative RT-PCR test report not older than 72 hours mandatory for entry at the borders.

Anyone coming to Karnataka from Kerala or Maharashtra, by air, train, bus or personal vehicle will have to produce the negative covid test report, even if one is fully vaccinated, for entering the State.

Meanwhile, in Delhi the TPR has moved up from a weekly average of 0.09% to 0.12%, highest in the last 25 days, according to the health department's bulletin. TPR is a crucial statistical metric that almost flawlessly indicates the extent of spread of the virus in a selected region.
