Bengaluru, May 30 : The Karnataka government will discontinue the mid-day media release providing information on Coronavirus cases in the state, an official statement said here on Saturday.
The state will now hold a press conference every evening to be addressed by S Suresh Kumar, Karnataka Primary and Secondary Education Minister.
The official twitter handle of the state’s Health Department added that the move was prompted by the increase in the number of cases in the last few days. It also added that a similar protocol was being followed by other states in the country. Earlier, the Health Department used to release a mid-day COVID-19 bulletin every noon followed by an evening bulletin at 1700 hrs. (UNI)
