Mysuru District Health Officer T. Amarnath on Wednesday told a meeting of the Zilla Panchayat that COVID-19 cases had been on the rise and the infection was spreading from schools, colleges, and theatres because of the closed environment. The cinema halls had been permitted to run shows to full capacity after the curbs were lifted following a drop in the infection rate.

Now, the positivity rate is peaking, worrying the authorities who are fearing a faster spread of the pandemic.
