Mangaluru: Unmindful of lockdown, people flood central market


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Mar 25: Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has announced 21 days lockdown in the entire country commending from Tuesday midnight. But this measure has not resulted in reduction in the number of people flocking the central market here.

The central market here witnessed large number of people on Tuesday. On Wednesday too there have been ample number of visitors to the market and business is roaring. Even though the crowd is large, only a few are seen wearing face masks.

On Tuesday, most had visited the market and conducted business without any masks. On Wednesday too, people appear to be under the impression that they can fight coronavirus infection without any protection.

Truckloads of vegetables have arrived at the central market, and from here, they are being dispatched to different markets in the district.

But roads in many places are empty and deserted with no commuters. Only a few places of essential items were crowded.

    I think instead of opening the essential shops between 6 am to 12 noon, local administration and corporator can initiate to send the daily essentials to our door step thru tempo.

    By arranging so we can achieve 100% loockdown.

    Why is this article spreading mis-information ?

    "most had visited the market and conducted business without any masks."

    Masks are to be worn only if one is sick. Please correct your article.

    One will not know himself if he/she is infected or not. So he/she should wear mask to protect others.

    The guidelines given by doctors at the moment (on TV channels) is that masks and quinine are not for healthy people. Are you suggesting to go against the government guidelines ?

    There is no such guidelines from the government that says DO NOT to use the masks.
    Doctors only advising on when/why/where to use the masks so that there is no shortage of supply which is essential for healthcare workers.

    Our safety is in our hands... If someone coughs suddenly or sneezes what can be done ? Sneezing sometimes come all of a sudden.....so it's our responsibility to cover our face either by mask or shawl..

    Sunil K.mangaloreI think you misunderstood here.Masks are to be worn to protect himself infection from others.and same time when one is infected he has to be get into quarantine,so that not spread to others.and not to move about .So that he too should be treated before disaster happens.Other side food shops shouldnt be closed for 3weeks completely.One who has not kept reserved for long,how will they survive?Here for example supermarket,Pharmacy are open. .Only they allow limited number of people inside so that not crowded.when one comes out second one is allowed.Not more than two persons ,gathering is not allowed on road.

    Total confusion at Central Market area no shops are open because corporation staff forcing shops to close at 10:30am . Forget inside the central market outside the central market the groceries shops all closed by 10:30am.
    Utter confusion the DC not mentioned about time. Since today is the first day of 21 days lockdown.
    I was surprised later on to see some supermarkets open even at 11:30am. We know the Government takes decisions without planning and instructions. Just like the DeMo time in 2016.

    The war room warriors think of home delivery of essential. The district administration must chalk outplan. Think less of lathi more of welfare. The system failure and fear avoid among the the people be avoid Ed. Implement rules systematically and impartial. Give proper protection to service people. The gathering is sending people to join and it will be a failure of social distance. If people wander unnecessarily put them in isolated place so. For all requirements create helpline as available in curfew

    Bunch of pathetic fools. Warning or Lathis is the only solution for such fools. This is what is now currently done in Maharashtra. Nobody dares to venture out or stay in groups.

    We can't control the crowd, but our MCC can shift the wholesale vegetable market ( sabji mandi) to out skirt of Mangalore city like in most of the big cities. That is my opinion.

    Decipline and distancing while buying essential items is important. People can stand in queue keeping distance of 1 meter and also get free dose of vitamin D from sunshine. Shop owners should implement this for smooth 21 days lockdown.

    What is happening to social distancing? The Government should have assured people that essentials will be available to the general public groceries and markets would be open but the main agenda was lockdown for 21 days. When corona virus started in China and had few students from Kerala who were positive and reached India. Then the Government should have had only two international airports open in India that is Delhi and Mumbai. The passengers isolated and we would be better off today.

    Central Market should only allow retailers and not for individuals. This will create too much problem. Let the people buy fish and vegitable from shop keepers nearest to their house. They should allow medical shops 24 x 7.

    People should not crowd..
    Wash hands after reaching home..
    Do not talk with others on the way.
