With the Centre banning flights to and from UK, from December 22 midnight till December 31, in light of a new and highly infectious strain of virus detected there, the Karnataka Government has decided to trace all the passengers who had arrived in Bengaluru and Mangaluru from the UK from December 7. The district surveillance officers have been asked to trace, test and place such people under home quarantine. Those who are RT-PCR positive shall be placed under hospital isolation and positive samples will be sent to NIMHANS, Bengaluru for molecular testing. Passengers who are RT-PCR negative, shall be under strict home quarantine for 14 days.
The Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar told the media that 531 passengers had arrived from UK into the State on Sunday and out of them, 138 didn’t have covid negative certificates though all of them were asymptomatic. “Hence, now we are trying to trace them in a day or two and conduct RT-PCR tests.
We will also set up kiosks at airports for checking all the passengers coming from Europe and even other transit centres.” He also asked all the returnees from Europe to go for voluntary RT-PCR tests. The Minister also dismissed talks of lockdown in Karnataka.
Meanwhile, Dr Jagadish Hiremath, Medical Director at Ace Suhas Hospital, has called for strict policy measures for all the passengers from Europe. Dr. Srivatsa Lokeshwaran, Consultant - Interventional Pulmonology, Aster CMI Hospital said that the new-found serotype of the virus was causing a massive upsurge of cases in the UK. “The virus is 70 per cent more infectious. However, whether it may lead to more morbidity and mortality is yet to be understood. The RNA virus has always had the tendency to mutate fast and hence, there are several challenges which are being faced in tackling this virus. If the UK is able to contain the virus locally it will help put out the flame early,” he said.
So, how cautious Bengalureans need to be. DR P Rupashree, Consultant General Physician at Apollo Spectra Hospital, said, “In our interconnected world, it is easy for the virus to spread in no time. So yes, there is a definite possibility of the mutated UK strain coming to India. Right now, we still don’t know if the mutated strain in the UK has made the virus more dangerous or less dangerous. If mutations cause significant changes in the virus and rapidly enough, then the effect of any vaccine against the virus will be short-lived and we will need to get a new vaccine every year just like we are doing for the Flu vaccine currently. Only time will tell,” she added.
However, Dr Hiremath added that mutations were common and take place regularly in viruses. “It’s unlikely that another mutation affecting the virus similarly will happen again. The vaccine has been found to retain its potency against this strain too. So for now there is no cause to worry much.”

One more meeting about schools
Dr K Sudhakar said it was too early to predict if this new development will affect the government’s decision to resume classes for class 10 and II PU. He said that he will meet once more with experts to get their recommendation on school reopening. The health minister also warned hotels against violating government norms in organising New Year parties.

In the hot seat: CD Projekt Red held an unscheduled call with investors on Monday to clear the air over the Cyberpunk 2077 buggy release. Stakeholders asked CDPR executives many challenging questions regarding problems with the game and the greenlighting of refunds.

When asked if the company felt pressured to release the game even though the console version was in a terribly buggy state, Senior Vice President of Business Development Michał Nowakowski said that the decision was more about a failure in thoroughly looking at performance on base consoles rather than 'internal or external pressures.' It simply did not examine current-gen performance as closely as it did on next-gen and PC.

'It is more about us looking – as was previously stated – at the PC and next-gen performance rather than current-gen,' Nowakowski explained. 'We definitely did not spend enough time looking at that. I wouldn't say that we felt any external or internal pressure to launch on the date – other than the normal pressure, which is typical for any release. '

Nowakowski also said that he felt that the game made it through Sony's and Microsoft's quality certification process because they trusted CDPR to get the problems ironed out promptly after release. He added that the patching process has already begun, with an update released over the weekend and another rolling out next week. He reassured investors that in January, the game would receive huge improvements, and by February, it would have all of the major issues fixed.

Regarding the refunds, CDPR had to clarify that customers are not just handed refunds with no questions asked. For the most part, Sony and Microsoft are handling returns for digital versions and have guidelines and restrictions in that process. CDPR ultimately has no control over whether or not they issue those refunds.

For example, both companies require refund requests to be submitted no more than 14-days after purchase. Sony further expects that the game has not been downloaded and played. Microsoft looks at claims on a 'case-by-case' basis. In any event, consumers may or may not get approved for a refund, and that decision is at the sole digression of Microsoft and Sony.

The execs also stressed that they were not encouraging customers to ask for refunds, despite the tone of their earlier tweet.

'We are not encouraging gamers to return the game; we hope they'll give us a chance to improve it on old-gen consoles,' CDPR co-founder and joint CEO Marcin Iwiński stated. 'We sincerely hope that gamers will prefer to wait for updates since they had waited so long for the game, but – again – this is our humble hope.'

'I want to state that clearly, as there seem to be certain misconceptions,' Nowakowski chimed in. 'Our procedure here with Microsoft and Sony is not different
than with any other title released on any of those storefronts.'

When asked about the number of refunds issued so far, Joint-CEO Adam Kiciński said they did not have those figures yet, adding that they have not determined if they will share those numbers outside of the company. However, he did say that it would share sales figures sometime before Christmas.

Kiciński also shed some optimism on the situation, saying that the longer people play Cyberpunk 2077, the more positivethings they have to say about it.

'Sentiment is positive. With every passing day since the release, we're getting more and more positive feedback,' the CEO said. 'We started low, but we're gaining. [muffled] we started with a score of 70, but now it's 79. If you filter those who have played 10 hours or more, the score is 85 – so the more you play, the more enjoyment you feel.'

The primary takeaway from the call was that CDPR wanted to make it clear that it was not abandoning Cyberpunk 2077, and that the stock prices that took a tumble, will recover. It ultimately expects the game to perform as well or better than The Witcher 3 did, which also suffered a shoddy release.
