After Karnataka eased COVID-19 restrictions from July 25 with reopening of amusement parks and similar places, and allowed places of worship to carry out related religious activities, the state is reporting a drop in the rate at which active COVID-19 cases are declining.

This is a cause of concern since the state government has eased COVID-19 restrictions and claims that the second wave is winding down in its capital and most parts of the state.
