Mangaluru, May 23: A one-year-old child who was severely injured when a family from coastal Karnataka met an accident in Saudi Arabia last week, passed away yesterday (22/5/2021) at the National Guard hospital in Riyadh.

The mishap took place when NRI Adil, his wife and their two children - a daughter and a son - were returning to Dammam in their RAV4 Toyota car from Jizan city after spending their EID holidays. 

At around 8 am, near a checkpoint, around 50 kms away from Riyadh, the car overturned as Adil lost control over it. The car moved off-road upside down. 

While the younger child Owais Adil suffered critical injuries, others escaped with minor injuries. The child was immediately taken to the hospital. Due to the internal bleeding, the child succumbed to the wounds in the hospital yesterday afternoon.

The body is in the morgue of the hospital awaiting the legal formalities. The funeral rites will be done most probably tomorrow afternoon in the RIYADH Naseem cemetery.

Adil has been working in a travel agency in Dammam. He hails from Guntalkatte, Moodabidri on the outskirts of Mangaluru. Many expressed their deep commiserations over the death of the child.

Bengaluru, June 15: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Tuesday indicated that there will be further relaxation in lockdown restrictions in the state after June 21, when the current Covid-19 guidelines come to an end.

"After analysing the situation today and tomorrow, we will look into what is to be done, with the situation improving, and what all to be relaxed further and we will do it," Yediyurappa said in response to a question about the next phase of unlocking in the state.

According to official sources, the chief minister is likely to take a decision in this regard, after taking into account advice by the state's Covid-19 Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), consisting of experts, and after consulting senior ministers and officials of his government, before the end of this week.

The government had last week issued fresh guidelines that extended the Covid-19-induced lockdown measures in 11 districts, which have a high positivity rate, till June 21, while some relaxations were announced in the rest of the state from June 14. It had also said that the Covid-19 curfew (daily) will be imposed from 7 pm to 5 am and the weekend curfew will be imposed from 7 pm on Friday to 5 am on Monday, after June 14.

The eleven districts where strict lockdown measures have continued are Chikmagalur, Shivamogga, Davangere, Mysuru, Chamarajanagar, Hassan, Dakshina Kannada, Bengaluru Rural, Mandya, Belagavi and Kodagu.

Among the relaxations announced by the government in the remaining 19 districts of the state include the opening of parks and industrial units with riders, extending the duration of shops selling essential goods, permission for autos and taxis to ply with a maximum of two passengers, among others. The relaxation in lockdown measures is in place from 6 am on June 14 to 6 am on June 21.

The Karnataka government had initially announced 14 days 'close-down' from April 27 but subsequently imposed a complete lockdown from May 10 to May 24 as the Covid-19 cases continued to spike. Citing lockdown yielding results and experts' advice, it was further extended till June 7 and then again till June 14.
