    It is very difficult to trace out the origin of corona virus carrier(infected person) to first Neuro hospital. May be its from the in-pateint, out-patient, visitors or hospital staff, that too without their knowledge . So blaming the hospital without any proof is not good.

    Mr sunder I appreciate your concern we should have closed early,good advice simply consider today's condition to Dec ,we had close to 40k cases and predominantly in China and you were proposing lockdown today we have 4 million cases in 158 countries and most of the countries including India is flying people home ,do u think these lakhs returning will not any infection? So looking things with different perspective will have different outcomes.

    Dear Monty,
    If first case was detected in Wuhan on Dec 19; since all international passengers were moving freely in India & world over, it would not be wrong to say that such a virulent infection would not have been transmitted to multiple people in multiple places with the medical professionals being unaware of it; in which case, till it became well known, the world over including transmission, diagno stic kits, varied symptoms, treatment/isolation protocols many people would have been treated as per pneumonia protocol or as per the other individual sentinel symptoms like stroke, heart/neurological problems etc. while CORONA was hiding behind this; many victims may have survived, a few succumbed!! What say??

    It is the right time to catch the owner of 1st Neuro Hospital owner and interrogate him.
    Police Commissioner can do this job easily.

    This is not a criminal case nor did the owner conspire to do this.

    Alphonse bro, your post is very brazen & seems unwarranted at this hour of crisis!
    What offense do you think FN & it's owners have made to justify your post??
    Repeatedly pointing towards one entity will demoralize & demotivate highly dedicated medical professionals!

    Do you know in Mumbai most of the top multispeciality hospitals became hotspots, at one point in time,& were sealed down till they were sanitized & cleared of all infection!! Even few doctors succumbed to this infection!!

    what is happening in First Neuro. Surprised either hospital management haven't given full information about their patients to District administration or there loophole in managing the pandemic from District administration.

    Karkala or Kerala doesn't matter but one thing we have to admit Mangalore has 4 cases from Kerala. Kasragod was a hot spot we all blamed them and taunted them for their health care but now look at them they are free of corona

    not really if each and every citizen follow social distancing and being truth with out hiding anything about their interaction with any of Infected person or area.

    these 2 people visited the hospital but they didnt travel to karkala. we have to appriciate their action of quarantine.... or else virus would have spread in karkala too...

    In Wuhan pandemic started in Dec19 and started spreading other countries . We in India kept open International Airports to enter the people with disease to India though we knew that thousands of people are died in other countries. We started lock down from March 24 after spreading of the disease in the country. If we had closed only international Airports from March 1st there would not have need of lock down anywhere in India. We simply appreciate our ideas of control over the disease. Now there is no alternative than living with virus.
