    144 of 445 new cases were reported in Bengaluru, which has lately seen a sharp surge in virus cases, indicating the possibility of community transmission.

    In the last week, Bengaluru has reported 953 cases and its tally approaching the 2,000-mark ever since it reported the first positive case on 8 March.

    However, the B.S.Yediyurappa-led state government has ruled out another lockdown in Bengaluru fearing that it would further cripple the economic uncertainty in the state.

    Karnataka is projected to have 25,000 confirmed coronavirus cases by mid-August.
