    Can anyone explain the logic of Sunday being total lockdown and other days from 7 to 7. People now kno social distancing, safety measures and lot of other ways to protect themselves. Sunday lockdown means Saturday and Monday chaos at the local market place. Pls understand and take right decisions. Go well all.

    Sunday corona inactive...since it's a weekly holiday. Really finds funny how many seconds required to spread corona? One person can infect so many people. Few hours not sufficient for its spread??
