Mangaluru, March 14, 2020: The District Administration has taken adequate precautionary measures against Coronavirus. Besides screening facilities at New Mangaluru Port and Mangaluru International Airport suspected coronavirus infection cases are tested at Wenlock and Ladygoschen Hospitals as well as six community health centres, 66 PHCs and four taluk hospitals.
The staff in these centres have also been provided proper training. Those arriving from overseas can contact 104/1077 or 0824-2442590 in case they have cold symptoms as well as breathing problems.
With the state government announcing a one-week shutdown of malls, theatres, public functions, private ceremonies well as declaring holidays for school and colleges, on Friday evening there was quite a rush at several places with people busy buying essential commodities.
Meanwhile with no outsiders or tourists arriving, the hotel business is quite low in the past few days.
