Karnataka has over 10,000 coronavirus cases, including 164 deaths…

At a time when citizens are having a difficult time finding a hospital bed for coronavirus treatment, a new order in Karnataka has become controversial. 100 rooms at a deluxe government guest house in Bengaluru, Kumara Krupa, have been set aside as a Covid Care centre for ministers, MLAs, MPs and top government officials.

 Congress leader Rizwan Arshad blamed the government for what he called a mess. “The state government has messed up everything. We have reached the state where a part of the Guest House is being converted into a COVID19 treatment facility for VIPs. There is no room or bed available in government hospitals, We are even running short of ventilators and ICUs,” the Congress MLA said.

Karnataka has over 10,000 coronavirus cases, including 164 deaths. Bengaluru has seen a spike in cases and two markets in the heart of the city have been sealed. To tackle the rising demand, the government ordered 50 per cent rooms in private hospitals for COVID-19 patients and capped charges.

Former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, in a series of tweets on Wednesday, claimed an acute shortage of beds and ventilators to treat COVID-19 patients in the state. “The state government has failed to provide adequate treatment to those infected with corona. There are no beds and no ventilators to treat more than four thousand patients. Self-induced lockdown is the only solution,” he tweeted.
