    Whatever the justification may be, locking down Mangalore on EID day is not at all acceptable.
    I wonder if Khadar, J R Lobo, Mithun Rai ...everyone has taken voluntary retirement!!

    Anyways Eid Mubarak to everyone.

    In Udipi where CORONA is spreading it's tentacles, local buses are hauling public (God only knows how many of them are carriers) in bulk, as per yesterday news, throwing all caution to the winds???
    And on other side, a few selected group of people are in quarantine, some in cozy hotels?

    I really don’t understand the logic of the government. What do you mean by total lock down??? This government is not able to stick it any decision. Very poor governance. If it continues like this our state may be the worst affected state.

    This means from 7pm till Monday 7a.m.corona virus is very very active... It will be roaming in different form... So, whole country should sit inside for not getting infected.... Rest of the days it's inactive and very weak so that can't mutate....

    how much our police can do? they are doing their best and if they turn aggressive then same people will start screaming about human rights violation and posting their videos on WhatsApp.. People from DK and Udupi are highly educated. they need to take responsibility..

    Scientific temper must be maintained.
    Does it mean the virus is on holiday from Monday to Tuesday.
    Yes I know the counter argument, but I think one must make a study of how much percentage of corona spread mite be avoided just on 1day lockdown per week

    People wander most on weekends , rest of the days they'll either work from home or will be working in their offices , can't let anybody roam around during these tough times for leisure , that's why these measures were taken ,and moreover how can people misunderstand this ?

    This is the kind of muddled thinking that has gotten is into this mess!!! On Sundays, The virus roams around like a Bhatakti Aatma hunting hunting down anyone on the roads and on other days, it goes and hides in its boot bungla?
    Seriously, what are they thinking. Either enforce strict lockdown on all days or none at all!!! I still see people roaming around without mask. Why hasn't the DC issued an order fir compulsory masks and fines related to it?

    Jossey sir, you are absolutely right we trust the educated, no doubt abut Deputy Commissioner, but to implement rules some uneducated will force. I still confused Saturday 7 PM to Monday 3 AM complete lockdown i mean as a precaution measure decision taken, what about Monday to Saturday that means full confidence about Corona will not effect may be it will take rest (Relax).

    Weddings that are scheduled on Sunday can be held. What hidden logic behind this still big question??????. Whoever getting marriage during this pandemic situation, apart from risk & fear are they intend to maintain social & physical distance ( I don't think they will).

    Total Lockdown you say, private vehicles are banned but taxis or auto rickshaws can ply?
    Has the virus given any clue to any scientist or astrologer that it will be active in that time period ONLY?

    Sir,

    It is an order from the District Administration. You too can pass orders like this after becoming an IAS officer.

    Are you prepared to undertake Exams at least next calendar year?

    It is after all a Holiday Sunday. What is the problem in staying at home? Haven't you seen this Dakshina Kannada District for all these years?

    All the 6 days people are wandering here and there without any social distancing. This complete lock down seems that Virus will be coming in Sunday only. Fish, milk, meat show rooms are open and no private vehicle. This means everyone shoild use public transport for buying these items??
