With the Karnataka government reinstating stricter control of transit passengers from Kerala in view of increasing COVID-19 positive cases, people here bound to Mangaluru and other parts of Dakshina Kannada for various purposes including medical needs and studies are in a fix again.
Long queues of vehicles could be seen in the border areas since morning as Karnataka authorities sealed many roads including national highways and restricted entry only for those with COVID-19 negative certificates.

The Dakshina Kannada authorities sealed all borders from Monday except four to cross over, sources said.
According to Karnataka officials at the borders, those who wish to enter have to produce COVID-19 negative certificate through an RT-PCR test taken 72 hours prior to their cross over time.
Health and police personnel are on duty at the four borders, viz. Talapady in Mangalore taluk, Saradka in Bantwal, Nettanige-Mudnuru in Puttur taluk and Jalsoor in Sullia, to verify and allow people's entry into Karnataka.

*Nagpur Lockdown From March 15-21, Essential Services To Continue*

Mumbai: Nagpur in Maharashtra will go under lockdown for a week, from March 15 to March 21, due to the rising cases of coronavirus in the city. Essential services such as vegetable and fruit shops and milk booths will stay open. More parts of the state could go into lockdown, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray indicated as COVID-19 cases have been on the rise in Maharashtra for nearly a month.
"In the coming days, there might be some places where a lockdown is inevitable. We will take the decision in the next couple of days," Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said after taking his first shot of the anti-Covid vaccine.

The lockdown has been imposed in all the areas that come under the Nagpur Police Commissionerate.

The move comes two days after a ''Janata curfew'' was imposed for three days in Maharashtra's Jalgaon district, from 8 pm today to 8 am on Monday.

Maharashtra has reported the highest daily new COVID-19 cases at 13,659, almost 60 per cent of the daily new cases in the country. The state continues to have the highest number of Covid cases in India.

Mr Thackeray had left it to the local administration in each district to take a call on imposing stricter measures - including night curfews or partial lockdowns - to stem the cases of the infection.

The state's health department on Wednesday came up a seven- point action plan, including testing of close contacts, fast contact-tracing, mass testing in hot-spots and audit of deaths. All district administrations were asked to act upon the action plan.

Maharashtra, Kerala, Punjab, Karnataka, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu continue to report a high number of fresh COVID-19 cases and together account for 85.91 per cent of the new cases of the coronavirus infection reported in the country in a span of 24 hours, the Union health ministry said on Thursday.

Subhakar Khadka’s Uber passenger started screaming profanity and racial slurs at him shortly after he picked her and two friends up in San Francisco on Sunday. He had just stopped to let her buy a mask at a gas station, but now she was refusing to wear it.

“F--- the mask,” the woman said.
Then, leaning toward the driver, she ripped off her mask and coughed on him several times.
“And I got corona,” another passenger said, laughing. Then the woman who had coughed grabbed the driver’s phone and tore his mask off his face.
A video of the incident recorded from Khadka’s security camera went viral this week after KGO-TV reporter Dion Lim tweeted it out, garnering more than 2.3 million views by early Wednesday.

San Francisco police said Tuesday that they are investigating the incident, while both Uber and Lyft said they have banned the rider who stole the driver’s mask, who has yet to be named, from using their apps.

“This behavior is completely unacceptable and goes against our Community Guidelines,” Uber said in a statement Monday.
Violent conflicts over mask policies have become common since governments and companies have mandated face coverings to slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. In October, two sisters in Chicago allegedly stabbed a security guard 27 times when he asked them to put on masks before entering a shoe store. Last month, a man in New Orleans fatally shot a police officer who intervened as he fought an employee trying to stop him from entering a basketball game without a mask.
A man refused to mask up at a high school basketball game. Then he killed an officer who intervened, police say.
Khadka, 32, picked up the three passengers seen in the viral video around 12:45 p.m. on Sunday, San Francisco police said. After the women entered his car, he noticed one wasn’t wearing a mask. He asked her to put one on but she said she didn’t have one. Khadka drove to a gas station so her friend, who was wearing a mask, could buy one.

By the time the friend returned, the two other passengers were already taunting Khadka and berating him for picking them up in the first place, according to videos captured by one of the passengers and posted on her Instagram. Fed up with how they were treating him, Khadka told the women that he was ending the ride and asked them to get out of his car.
“You can get out. Please. I don’t want to drive you. Please get out,” he said, according to the passenger’s videos. “I’m confirming it the last time. I’m going home, you are free to get out of my car.”
But the passengers refused to get out and the altercation escalated. The woman sitting behind Khadka reached over him, grabbed his phone out of his hand and ripped off his mask, breaking one of the ear loops.

“You don’t touch my property,” he said, according to his surveillance video.

“You were going to kick us out in the middle of nowhere,” she said. “Are you stupid?”

Police said that when the women finally exited his car, one of them “reached into an open window and sprayed what is believed to be pepper spray into the vehicle and toward the driver.” Then they fled.
Khadka told KPIX that the spray was so suffocating that he had to get out of his car. The spray lingered and left a blue residue in his car. After several pleas for help, Uber gave Khadka $120 to get his car thoroughly cleaned, according to messages posted by KGO-TV.
Khadka, who immigrated to the United States from Nepal eight years ago and sends money back to his family, said in an interview with KPIX that he didn’t deserve to be treated that way.

“I never said anything bad to them, I never cursed, I was not raised that way. I don’t hit people, I am not raised that way, so they were not getting out of my car,” he said.
AD

He added that he thinks the passengers were harassing him because he’s South Asian.
“If I was another complexion, I would have not gotten that treatment from them,” he said. “The moment I opened my mouth to speak, they realized I’m [not] one of them, so it’s easy for them to intimidate me.”
On Instagram posts apparently made by the passenger who coughed on Khadka, the woman accused him of trying to force them to exit on the freeway. She added that his “plan was to go viral from the beginning instead of just taking us to our destination,” she wrote in her Instagram stories Tuesday.

“It’s always two sides to the story and [there] was a reason why he only cropped the video to 40 seconds and sent it to the news,” she added. “He never wanted to show y’all what he did that [led] up to that.”
In a live stream, which was recorded and posted on Twitter, the woman also admitted to assaulting him.

“All I did was smack — take his mask off and cough a little bit, but I don’t even have corona,” she said, before later conceding that her actions were “disrespectful” and that “I was wrong for that” for taking off his mask. “But it could have been avoided.”
“That’s why I take Lyft!” she added.
Lyft officials responded to a tweet of the live stream saying that even though the incident didn’t involve their company, it was “unacceptable treatment of the driver” so they would “permanently remove the rider from the Lyft community.”

In response to the video and the minimal funding Khadka received from Uber to cover cleaning and lost wages, Cyan Banister, a venture capitalist who was an early Uber investor, started a GoFundMe with a goal of raising $20,000. By Wednesday morning, the page had raised more than $29,000. Banister also pledged to match the $20,000 to assist with legal fees.
“He shared his video simply because he wanted justice. He didn’t expect any of us to step forward, but we did,” Banister wrote after speaking with Khadka. “No person should have to go on the news and raise awareness this way to get justice but sometimes we have to be loud and we have to use our voices and influence to stick up for others around us.”
