Mangaluru, Jul 13:  Amid rising Covid-19 cases in Kerala's Kasargod, inter-state bus service between Mangaluru and the border district will remain suspended for one more week.

Dakshin Kannada District-in-Charge Minister Kota Srinivas Poojary, who chaired the KDP meeting on Tuesady, said it would be difficult to monitor all the passengers if the bus services to Kerala are started.

''We may also face an increase in Covid-19 cases. We will study the situation for one week. If the positivity rate in Kasargod decreases, then the decision on starting bus services will be taken."

Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner Dr Rajendra K V said that show-cause notices had been served to a few private hospitals following complaints of overcharging for treating Covid-19 patients.
