Keeping in mind the Ugadi festive season, the Karnataka government has set up village-level task forces comprising members of its gram panchayats and local govt workers to lead and oversee the efforts against the coronavirus pandemic.

"Village-level efforts are needed to communicate to the rural public about the risks of spread of COVID-19 and the importance of taking precautions, especially of social distancing by staying at home," the govt said in a note detailing the plan.
