    Lockdown does not practically work, but only on paper; in overpopulated countries like India where 78% of people are middle class to extremely poor & with lack of basic medical facilities, ignorance, myths, dogmas, devious religious beliefs, starvation, discrimination, migrants, lack of hygiene etc!

    Where was the protocol applicable to lacs of migrants who were herded like sheep; and then walked 1000s of kms with only one pair of clothes?
    Protocol has to be followed rigorously, but due to our abysmal conditions ........

    Only our immunity & herd immunity can help us ride the virus!

    In April, Udupi District administration was convinced Udupi will get Corona-Free tag. They were in denial that India has reached community Transmission phase!

    Now Russia is bearing the brunt of CORONA!!

    "As the deadly coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, Russia has gradually become the world's second most-infected country.

    Russia's consumer protection watchdog Rospotrebnadzor has recommended that Russian airlines fill their flights by no more than 50% in order to adequately space passengers apart from each other.

    There have been 299,941 cases of coronavirus infections reported in Russia so far and 2,873 deaths.
    Russia's low coronavirus death toll compared to other countries is a result of the population's herd immunity, the head of Russia's Gamalei Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology Alexander Gintsburg said."~Moscow Times~ May 19

    My Dear Friends, Please understand one thing that this Virus is here to stay for some time. we cannot keep stopping people from different places from coming to their home. Till how long we can do this when we do not know when this corona mess will end. Only thing we can and we should do is taking enough precautions like quarantine for 14 days, maintain safe distance, proper Sanitizing and using proper face mask and gloves. we need to learn to live with this virus for some more time so do not be scared and prepare yourself and your loved ones for fighting this Virus.

    Yes, due to initial lock down, govt got much needed time to set up a system to deal with pandamic. Its going to infect almost all, but it should not happen at once, the more time it takes, people can be saved.

    Loving God, I pray that you will comfort me in my suffering, lend skill to the hands of my healers, and bless the means used for my cure. Give me such confidence in the power of your grace, that even when I am afraid, I may put my whole trust in you; through our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

    Were they not tested before their travel? This looks never-ending. If Udupi kind of Green zone becomes Orange or Red zone, then whole of India cannot be controllable.

    When a country like INDIA had 550 cases, our PM announced National Lockdown. Now when the number had increased to 1 Lakh, our PM is saying live with Corona.

    IMHO, when CORONA cases are vigorously reemerging from hitherto safe zones like Udipi, public transport (pvt buses) should not have opened so early!! Fingers crossed!!

    If you have told them to stay in Delhi itself, we could have contained the virus at less then half the current number!
