    Most of those tested +ve should recover soon unless they have serious comorbid conditions; now, we have to learn to live with the virus as it's not going to go away anytime soon, how much ever breakdown one does!

    It's time to open up the economy in stages as early as possible as it's near rock bottom!!
    Jai Hind!

    Agree, only thing is we have to see the Curve of infection is within manageable level.
    If it goes above the manageable level, again Lockdown is needed.

    In Mumbai, ICUs, Ventilators, Beds are full in capacity. In One bed 3 people are sleeping. Morgue does not have space to keep dead bodies.
    Now, schools are getting converted into hospitals.

    Also, Doctors & nurses shortage is happening, as 2/3 of the staff will be in Quarantine anytime.

    This is the time to help what ever possible, we can easily comments but need to stand and help. Helping others will benefit to us also. Definitely for few months this pandemic will be there, later on everything will be history and counts whatever we experienced and whatever we done to others. Lord will help us to do something to others. God bless us all.

    It's a type of influenza, which (CORONA variant has hits the first time) hits USA & other countries every year killing thousands of people; this CORONA virus has no vaccine as yet, seems to be far off if we are to get the perfect vaccine!

    Best is play safe, spruce up your immunity & open up the economy in stages....move on!

    Isn't it an irony that after lifting the lockdown covid 19 infections are rising all over India? If only people were given time to return to their home towns and villages before declaring lockdown, this situation wouldn't have arisen. Now what is going to happen? Government has started saying live with lockdown!

    Our green zone became red zone after people from gulf started reaching here. The way people are bringing virus to our country, it looks like they don't even have money to buy mask and sanitizer.

    Good.. Open all the schools and malls and public transport. Wait for the hospitals to be flooded by people infected with covid 19. We are just orchestrating a disaster in the making.

    Bhandarkmaam, if we continue to live in fear like this because of a virus which cannot be annihilated by any means, there is no end to it; think HIV, still no vaccine, no option, but life goes on by prolonging it through antiretroviral therapy, but CORONA only kills a few who are weak (rule of nature)!
    Remember, this pandemic is like a world war but there is no treaty of Versailles to mark an end to this extended lockdown! We don't have to win the war against CORONA, but unfortunately we have to make peace with it's existence for now till a dependable vaccine comes out!!

    All the suffering and sacrifices of residents of twin districts during the lock down period is all now gone with the wind. The dangerous course is going to start now with these interstate and gulf arrivals coupled with mansoon rains at the doors. God only has to save the people.

    My favorite verses when times are tough: Isaiah 43:2 When you pass though the water, I will be with you, and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned, the flames will not set you ablaze. 3: For I am the Lord your God.......4: Because I love you...
