    Around 200 people spend time inside a small air conditioned conjusted place for than 2hours. And govt. turns it's eyes away from this main spot of spreading the virus. First air travel needs to be banned at least for 2weeks

    Corona is punishment by God for reducing human beings to animal status..if one sees local trains in Mumbai, even animals will not accept that condition of travel...even dog goes to corner and pisses whereas people piss anywhere in metros...capitalism and greed of politicians and businessmen has reduced common human beings to animal status...even IT parks accommodate staff 5 times more than the optimum level...when IT boom started IT companies used to be in cities and in good condition...now all IT parks in village boundaries of cities, with staff being ferried like animals in ordinary buses to and from the campus...poor overpopulated countries like India who have taken the path of 'capitalist greed and disregard for workers' will pay a heavy price...if distance between 2 employees has to be 6 feet, more than 90% of Indian business will close down...

    Government must simply attach Movable and Immovable assets of the violators and their immediate family. This act may lessen the burden for the administration.

    whatever be the lock down, the situation is already spiralled out of control as the airports where not sealed. Very very difficult to contain now.

    Our country is always late in all sorts of actions. Union govt was busy how to topple the MP govt.

    stupidity at its highest. Even now the airports have not been sealed!!

    It is naked truth that all the gulf returnees have brought this to India and still we are asked to clap and make sounds.
