    It would be a disaster if the government will take the lock down completely on 14th of April as the cases have doubled in the last three days.

    As per prediction of famous cardiac surgeion Dr Devi Shetty coronavirus will peak in the country towards end of April or first week of May. The signs are already there.

    It is better to either open up in phases or just continue complete lock down for at least two more weeks with military on the streets and shoot at sight orders.

    They will relax lockdown in phases, this is just for those who are trapped!

    I don't think Dr. Devi's prediction will come true; or else the mortality at least in each metro city should have been in 1000s considering our population & conditions compared to advanced countries! IMHO, the virus had hit India around the same time as China, but most infected got immunity after having mild symptoms; those who died were diagnosed symptomatically, since none knew about Corona at that time!!

    As if merciless caning was not enough, you are asking for more torture for the state to grant "shoot at sight"! Mind you India is one of the most populous with a large % living in poverty & ignorance; rich/poor divide is one of the biggest in the world! More people will die of starvation & other infection s than CORONA if the complete lockdown is continued any further!

    It is good hear the normalcy returning to the main stream. But I would like request the government to start 'Ultra Violet light' in the future to save the impact on environment using less water and at the same time kills the deadly 'Corona Virus'.

    Let's have real meaning to the 'Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan'.
