New Delhi, April 3: The Karnataka government has moved the Supreme Court challenging the Kerala High Court order directing the Centre to intervene urgently to open the sealed Karnataka-Kerala border to facilitate the movement of patients from Kasargod district to Mangalore for urgent medical help.

Kasargod is the worst COVID-19 affected area in Kerala with over 100 patients. Karnataka says Mangalore’s health care facilities are already overburdened and that local residents are opposing shifting of patients there.

The state government has also said that the Kerala High Court has no jurisdiction to direct Karnataka through the Centre to open the sealed border between the two states.
