    Nobody knows when covid19 will exits.
    We have to treat it as of our part of life.
    If our coastal administrations will give Z security to Covid19 means nobody can comeout from the house.
    For higher class people its ok.
    But middle & lower class people its difficult to work under such restrictions.
    Maybe our coastal administrations wanna keep green zone tags.
