    Qouting this reason, you Karnataka & Mangalore shut its doors to critically ill Kasargodians living in the border, and denied medical facilities. Around 10 patients died in the road, after returning them in Talapady. You were scared that, Kasagodians will spread disease in Mlore. Who spread it in Mlore. Now what is the situation of Mlore. Kasargod even reached to 0 patients at one instance. Dont forget that Kasargod's money and people are also part of Mlore's development. There is God watching everything and KARMA as well. Get well soon Mlore. May God lift this pandemic from us soon.

    The central Government should take a call by isolating and monitoring passengers coming from abroad. It is only because of people coming from overseas the Covid19 virus is coming to India. It because of these people we all are indirectly quarantined.

    Kasargod district is very close to Mangaluru city... Patients regularly come for treatment in the numerous professional private hospitals in the city..... This thought is very disturbing n bewildering, as the pandemic infection, can easily be transmitted to the local citizens, living in Dakshin Kannada district !!!!!
