    Lock down is very good. Some of the people travel without any solid reason. This has saved petrol, diesel and reduced air pollution very much in addition to corona spread. If the speed and % of testing corona is increased, and if the results are available within a few hours, definitely we can stop it spreading effectively. Testing should be available in all district s, talluks.

    Don't celebrate yet. It's too early to say that the spread is on the decline.

    Remember, it takes nearly two weeks for the symptoms to surface. Many of us readers could be having it within us. Yes, we have taken quite a lot of steps to contain it, but it's too early to say we have conquered it.

    If you're not testing then you're assuming. Without large scale testing we are fighting a war blind.
