With Maharashtra seeing a noticeable uptick in Covid-19 cases, neighbouring Karnataka has made it mandatory for people arriving from the state to carry a negative RT-PCR test report not older than 72 hours.

The Health Department order, citing the near-doubling of Covid-19 cases from around 350 per day to 645 per day within a week in Maharashtra, said it was likely that the second wave of the pandemic had started there.

The order comes close on the heels of a similar restriction being put on arrivals from Kerala, which, too, has been consistently seeing a significant number of daily cases. The Kerala restriction came after several nursing students from the state, residing at a Bengaluru hostel, tested positive for the virus after returning to Karnataka.
