In the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, small traders are badly affected in Karnataka. As per survey, Ramesh Chandra Lahoti, President, APMC Committee, FKCCI said, "50,000 small shops will have to shut down in Karnataka because they are unable to pay rent and have no capital. There's no help from banks. That's why, we want some package from govt to revive them." Meanwhile, the total number of active cases in Karnataka stands at 99,222.
