    I feel we must be exremely careful for preventing the spread in Mangaluru and surrounding areas Unless we act we may have many more cases Now that people are rterunging from mumbai Gulf etc to Mangaluru we may expect a sudden surge . We need to be extremyly careful with strict quarantine and lock down as Kasaragodu in Kerala has done . All Hospitals and Doctors must be trained well to combat thsi dealdy disease very well I am sure we shall overcome all the difficultes here

    Why Palsama procedure not done in Mangalore. One of the best facilities and qualified doctors are available. Do not allow the patients to die. 3 have lost their lives and 2 are serious. Why the government is quiet. Are the Mangalore authorities not capable to find out the reason behind First Neuro Hospital at Padil . It seems fishy.

    Plasma therapy, hydroxychloroqin, Azythromycin are not fully recommended for Covid-19 illness. It depends on Individuals immunity. It shows huge side effects.

    Research is going on with Remdesivir viral drug...let's see the clinical trial outputs.
