    Dr Mike Ryan of WHO has said that lockdown will not help eg Italy has highest mortality proportionate to population, isolation without lockdown is more effective eg Singapore.

    Do not compare Singapore and densely populated country like India.
    In that case, no country would have gone for lockdown.

    Take strict action against those who are creating Ruckus & not following orders. Until everyone self quarantine, this lockdown is useless. Some companies are forcing their employees to come to work.

    Either you lock down fully or you dont.
    As simple as that..
    Remember.. it just take around 5 positive cases to spread the infection to the entire community..
    Do read about" patient no 31" of South Korea
