    If people.coming from outside state are contributing to almost 90% of the cases then why are we not mandatorily quarenting them. Why are we letting them off. Even if they produced the latest medical reports what is the guarentee that from the time report came to the time they landed they have not been infected. I have never see a more irresponsible and moronic govt in the history of the world. Only country to open up when the case no.'s are increasing
