In the times of covid and omicron the Omicron is so dangerous that Those who are recovering from Omicron at home should regularly monitor their vital parameters like blood oxygen, pulse rate, and blood pressure. Oxygen saturation should always be 94 or above and the blood pressure should also be normal.
Taking care of health is very important in such time , we need to be very aware of our health and take all the precautions necessary to protect ourselves from the virus . Such carelessness by minister should be punished at all costs .
He is also heard quoting Prime Minister Narendra Modi to justify his stance. “Yesterday, the PM himself said that he will not make anything mandatory. It is the individual’s responsibility to wear a mask. In that way, it is left up to me too.
I didn’t feel like wearing it (a mask), so I didn’t wear it,” Katti said. His remarks have drawn outrage as the number of COVID-19 cases continues to be on the rise in Karnataka, and as the government gears up to handle the situation.
