Bengaluru, Aug 3: All those who met Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, who has tested positive for Covid-19, in the last three-four days will have to be quarantined, Medical Education Minister Sudhakar K said on Monday.

He also said those who came in contact with Yediyurappa in a couple of programmes in the past week are being traced.

Sudhakar, a medical doctor himself, said Yediyurappa has "very mild cough and his chest is clear."

"I think eight to ten days," he told news agency when asked how long the Chief Minister would have to remain in hospital.

Sudhakar said he is also getting himself tested as a few of his office staff had tested positive.

"All those who met the Chief Minister in the last 3-4 days...ideally they should be quarantined till they receive their results/report. Those who came in contact with him in a couple of programmes will have to isolate themselves and subject themselves for testing," the Minister said.

On the Chief Minister meeting Governor Vajubhai Vala, along with Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai last Friday, Sudhakar said as a result "They also become primary contacts. Ideally, they should also be quarantined and tested."

Yediyurappa who was hospitalised on Sunday night after testing positive for Covid-19 was "doing well" and is "clinically stable", the hospital treating him said.

The 77-year old leader is being monitored by a team of doctors at the Manipal hospital here.

"He is doing well, is clinically stable and will be monitored closely by our team," the hospital said in a statement late last night.

"I have tested positive for coronavirus. Whilst I am fine, I am being hospitalised as a precaution on the recommendation of doctors. I request those who have come in contact with me recently to be observant and exercise self-quarantine," Yediyurappa had said in his tweet.

Yediyurappa was in home quarantine a couple of weeks ago, after some staff members in his home office were found infected with the virus. Subsequently, he tested negative for Covid-19.

Mangaluru, Sep 16: An NRI woman from Udupi district who had mysteriously gone missing at Kuwait International Airport, is now reportedly in the custody of Kuwait CID police.

The 63-year-old woman was supposed to board an Indigo flight to Bengaluru from Kuwait on September 12.

She had spoken to her daughter from the airport and informed her that there was some issue with her immigration clearance after which her phone was not reachable.

The woman had a valid ticket and was on her return journey. Her boarding had been cleared at the airport. With no clue about the woman, her daughter uploaded a video clip on social media seeking help to trace her.

It is now gathered that the Kuwait CID police took the woman into custody. However, the reason for her detention is not known.

The woman's daughter, who is concerned about the fact that there is no information why her mother has been detained, has got in touch with NRI Forum Karnataka former vice-president Dr Arathi Krishna, who in return has established contact with the embassy officials and requested them to address the issue.

The woman was working as a housemaid in Kuwait for the last 28 years.
