Mysuru, May 11: BJP State Vice President V Srinivas Prasad today alleged that Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy is relaxing in the Resorts with family members when the State is reeling under severe drought situation.

Speaking to newsmen here on Saturday, he alleged that instead of taking necessary actions by listing out priorities to tackle the situation, Kumaraswamy visiting temples and offering prayers are his personal choice. People have given him good opportunity, but could not capitalize it, however, spending more times for his personnel works and family.

On the 2019 Lok Sabha results, he said that NDA will form the government again and Narendra Modi will continue to be the Prime Minister.

Minister makes surprise visit to hospital, asks it to follow COVID-19 guidelines strictly

Bengaluru, Jul 16: Karnataka Medical Education Minister K Sudhakar on Thursday paid a surprise visit to the C V Raman Hospital in Bengaluru and urged the administration to follow COVID-19 guidelines properly. He also took stock of the hospital's preparedness to fight the deadly virus.

The minister noticed a number of flaws and warned the hospital to go strictly by the guidelines. He saw that despite 15 high-flow oxygen beds lay vacant, only two patients were admitted. He then asked the hospital to send asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic patients to COVID-19 care centres so that beds were available to those who need these.

"Doctors' profession is a noble one and in a situation like this everyone should perform their duty with utmost humanity and compassion. During this crisis, we should all be kind and empathetic," the minister said. He also ordered the suspension of two officials for not following the guidelines and not giving the right treatment to patients.

He noticed that the hospital lab collected less number of swabs and instructed them to collect a minimum of 500 swabs per day. Pointing out the under-utilised beds and ICUs, he observed that because of such negligence by officials, the government is being blamed despite working day and night for the past four-five months.
During this visit, the minister also interacted with the patients through video call and enquired about the services provided to them by the hospital.

"Surprise visits will continue. I will be in touch with every lab and get the right number of tests done on a daily basis," the minister said while speaking to the media.

He also urged the people who have recovered from COVID-19 to donate their plasma to save other lives, adding that donors will receive a reward of Rs 5000 as a token of appreciation.
