"The Uttara Kannada district administration has worked tremendously in containing the COVID 19 and I appreciate and thank the health workers, Anganwadi staff, police department, health department, and all-district officials for their tireless efforts," he added.

"The district has 9 thousand pregnant women and only if they show COVID 19 symptoms during the delivery time, then only the COVID test is to be done.

Safety measures need to be taken in the District to conduct SSLC exams. Students should be provided with a fear-free atmosphere.
