Karnataka Health Minister K. Sudhakar expressed concern on Wednesday about the possibility of a fourth wave of COVID-19 in the state, following a spike in coronavirus cases in Delhi and other states.
"29 to 30 lakh people in the state are yet to receive the second dose of COVID-19 vaccination," he noted.
People have been advised to wear masks and receive the third dose of vaccination.
Expressing concern over the negligence of the public, he remarked: "Largely, people are not following the guidelines. The fourth wave has not entered the state yet, but precautions have to be taken."
Considering the spike in other states, the Karnataka government is initiating steps for preventive measures. A meeting will also be held by the Health Department. The monitoring has already begun on foreign travellers, he said.
The minister continued: "Masks have to be worn in crowded places. 97.9 per cent of people have got the second dose of vaccination in the state, the percentage of people getting the first dose has crossed 100 per cent. The parents have to focus on vaccinating kids above 12 years of age."
