Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa on Tuesday held a second round of meeting with representatives of private hospitals at Vidhana Soudha here over COVID-19.
Earlier on June 26, an order was issued to reserve about 50 per cent beds for COVID-19 patients in some private hospitals in Bengaluru, as per the Chief Minister's Office (CMO).
This was decided after Yediyurappa held a meeting on June 26 with MLAs from Bengaluru and ministers over the increasing number of coronavirus cases in the city.
The Chief Minister had earlier clarified that the state government would not impose another COVID-19 lockdown in Bengaluru as it has already sealed some areas.
So far, Karnataka has reported 14,295 COVID-19 positive cases, according to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. (ANI)
