    Asking people to line up at 5 PM was a stupid idea. Many people could have been infected during the 5 PM queue.

    Its not the time to play blame game. Let's be safe at home and follow the protocol, instructions and guidelines of the government. Remember you are playing with your own life and life of your family members and people at large. Stay safe stay home stay healthy. Clean your hands and take care. As one message said if you can't go outside go inside.(Yoga and meditation). Let's all pray that this virus become extinct from the planet.
    Thank you. Be safe all.

    It’s so sad to see so many selfish persons here. First consider as human.
    Borders are protected and what wring these guys did by arriving at mangalore airport, it’s not that they crossed border to spread at mangalore.
    Initially it was in China and everyone started blaming abd thought we are safe, behave always as if there is no tomorrow , help what you could do right now

    Yes! Social distance of 1 meter between person in Australia is in place for a week or so now. It is only practical for lay person surely not for health care workers though. How are you going to do this in India?? Other than the social distance, it is the gathering which will be the biggest challenge for India. The present limit for gathering will surely surprise many of you. Maximum 2 people gathering in Germany, UK and now in Australia. Maximum of 5 people for a wedding in UK and a maximum of 10 people for funeral in Australia.

    I have seen crowds of people celebrating the completion of janata curfew as if they achieved the task of driving corona out of our country. Are they ignorant or simply lost the ability to think clearly ?
    And in Mangalore some groups of youth are moving around not realizing the danger that one or more among them might actually be a carrier of virus .....
