    Obviously it is a highly impractical decision. Certainly you cannot lock up entire population of a district for 14 days and throw the keys away. Nobody inside or outside can freeze their lives for 14 days on one day notice.

    At this juncture, it is best to trust the wisdom of our administrators and cooperate with them. Hope it gives the desired result very soon. Fingers crossed...

    Seal down district boarders it means failure of district administration.., any district has not closed boarders they know how to handle the situation so they all go for other options.., eg- Uttar Kannada districts was in worst condition once but now under control..

    Easy for people with lots of money to preach about 6 day/7 day lockdowns. Be realistic. This is not the megakiller virus that the media is making it out to be. People need to put food on their tables. Everyone doesnt have easy money or vast ancestral property to flip and profit.
