    No point in blaming anyone. We are all Indians, just had to migrate other places for jobs, education, etc.. So - Empathize and treat everyone as our our own kind (Human)!

    This is alarming. Outsiders are bringing this disease to Udupi. This clearly shows how much polluted their place of origin is.

    Latent infections are spiking up in Udupi now, worrisome though, but most will recover with minor symptoms!
    Those young & healthy without major symptoms like breathing issues may be treated at home itself by issuing strict home quarantine guidelines!

    Close the borders.... day by day increasing. Once reached here, want to move around and not following the rules of quarantine... Humanitarian ground we are speaking and this is the result

    Closing borders are not solutions. Virus will stay with us for long period of time. Better to follow norms and be tactful as well as careful.

    Mumbai, it was expected considering it's population density (highest in the world); so, please do not compare Mumbai with DK/Udipi!

    Also, it's clear that the first cases came to India in Dec from abroad (not from Mumbai), and spread randomly & rapidly across the country!

    Srikanth after opening borders day by day cases increasing in udupi and other places.

    well to do people and celebrities till now inside their apartment, home no live shooting. Everything closed. You knew very well sufficient Xtra money.

    But our fellow poor migrants worker and others crossing borders without proper medical check up, food, Money with packed trucks and other vehicles. No proper social distancing as well.
    For whom to blame authority? Or voters.?
