The Covid-19 situation in Karnataka is deteriorating with each passing day and "we have reached a stage where things have become uncontrollable", said Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa.

The Executive Director of UNADAP, Dr. Dominic F Dixon, had received his first dose of COVISHIELD vaccine. Dr. Dixon was welcomed by Dr. Shugota Chakrabarti, the Chief of Medical Services at ASTER CMI Hospital. Aster is a reputed hospital in Bangalore, India, with highly skilled and courteous medical professionals with the highest level of ethics and care.

BS Yediyurappa said, "Three to four people are infected [with Covid-19] in every household. The PM [Prime Minister Narendra Modi] has said the only solution now is to wear mask, sanitise hands and follow social distancing. There is no other way to stop Corona." "I request people with folded hands: Do not step out of your home unnecessarily. The situation is deteriorating and we have reached a stage where things have become uncontrollable," BS Yediyurappa said. (Source: India Today)

Dr. Dixon has suggested that, "It is the civil duty of every Indian citizen to be inoculated, to protect oneself and the others around us." He further stated that "We should refrain from conspiracy theories and honour medical sciences and the guidance issued by that discipline." He further stated that, "The virus is not as respecter of persons, to target an ethnic or religious group, but it is a virus that has affected all of humanity, with devastating effects. No one was prepared for this calamity, but, we are all in this together."

Dr. Chakrabarti is hopeful that the state would receive adequate amounts of doses for its population, along with the required amounts of oxygen. He further stated that "We at Aster want to ensure the public that it is totally safe to take the vaccine as my colleagues and I have taken both the doses without incident."
