    Jossey sir, for us peanuts are sufficient. We are very small... Ours is a district....and this is in Mangaluru taluk... . We cannot... Cannot compare our district with Maharashtra, Ahmadabad and pune. Next to impossible.... When you compared the numbers according to the population it's equivalent. .. It's all come from Mumbai due to the arrival of our people....

    Most of them imported cases...
    Very less local cases..
    I think karnataka is still very safe due to containment measures...

    Probably wearing mask, and social distancing helped a lot..

    What's the strategy in containment zone? Will everyone get a test since it can be asymptomatic? Or will the administration play cat and mouse game with corona and wait for someone to manifest symptoms?

    Don't hope for tests, prepare for strict lockdown. Sorry, but those are the current rules.
