Bengaluru: In the wake of emergence of new variant of corona virus in the UK, the health minister Dr K Sudhakar held a meeting with Technical Advisory Committee of Health and Family Welfare Department.

As a precautionary measure the state govt has mandated a seven-day home quarantine for travellers from the UK, Denmark and Netherlands.

Travellers who have arrived in the state from these three countries in the last 14 days will be traced within the next 24 hours and subjected to RT-PCR test. While there is no need to panic I urge people to continue to follow all precautionary measures and stay safe," the minister said.

Sudhakar said that initial studies in the UK suggest that the virus may be more contagious than the present one but not more virulent.

"Caution should be exercised. New Year's lavish celebrations need to be let go. Some hotels are reported to be ready to celebrate the New Year. If so, action will be taken. "People's health is important to the government and they have to be more careful," he said.
