    Lock the country down with four hours notice, stop them from going to their hometowns for 50 days, get them infected at the place of lockdown and then send them to their hometowns! Brilliant isn't it? New cases are now detected in States which had hardly any vivid 19 cases, including in the north east!

    This being a pandemic disease, it is quite obvious that if one in the group has the disease all will get the same. So, those who come back from Mumbai need to think a lot before starting journey becaue they may have to live with the disease and as a matter of fact may have to have it too in the quarantine centres. Those attending them are also found moving around freely without wearing PPE are also prone to the disease.

    Before cases in dk used to be 1 in 2 days now it is atleast 3 everyday. This shows how fast the virus is spreading. Soon this they have started paper correction which is very risky as each paper 2 teachers should check there itself spreading can start. I don't know what our ministers are doing exams from June near this wenlock hospital only there are many exam centre's hope it is all cancelled for now

    Udipi & DK now the CORONA virus seems to be flaring up! I wonder, under the given circumstances, how wise it would be to resume public transport and religious worship so urgently???

    BTW, since a long time there's absolutely no news of the expert medical committee formed at the beginning of lockdown???

    The floodgates have been opened. DK and Udupi should have waited some more time before allowing people in from Maharashtra and Gujarat. When those two states have not yet controlled their cases, Karnataka should have realised the danger.

    Report says that all 9 cases in udupi were under quarantinne. But is silent on the 11 cases in mangalore. Were they or not in quarantine is not explained. Journalism shouldnt leave anything unexplained.

    By any chance does this include a family from porkhodi, jokatte?
