    Quarantine is not the solution but fake but only delay disease made to believe they conquered COVID 19, in reality, they used Chinese medicine never vaccinated Chinese.
    In reality, when not exposed to the sun you reduce your immunity lack of vitamin D, finally, you accept bill gates produced vaccine where it makes you a brainwashed hog.

    Modi and Rahul but support vaccines at the same time give eyewash support to traditional medicine. If you believe a vaccine is going to save us I have 40 questions for you . do a search on search on your search engine

    A waterproof wrist band with gps is the best option for the quarantined people. This will make them stay at one point.

    **Regarding Apps**

    Technology has benefits, but if our mind is NOT in control, we will waste our life - like people seeing Whatsapp & FB whole day. Where as achievers focus on their work & see Whatsapp only 15 mins at the end of the day.

    Aarogya Setu -
    Aarogya Setu is for contact tracing. Assume, You go to a shop for Grocery.
    After a week, one of the unknown person, who came to same shop, at same time, tests Covid-19 positive.
    Aarogya Setu informs you to go for Quarantine & go for Covid-19 Test - Before you spread it to Children, Old people, Wife & other people in family.

    Quarantine Watch - ONLY for people in Home Quarantine. To Track their movement. Previously, Home Quarantine people used to played football & attended functions & spread the virus.

    Seva Sindu - IT is NOT an app, but website. It is for Tracking people from outside Karnataka, who want to enter Karnataka. So, that govt can track & control corona virus coming from Out of State & Out of Country visitors to Karnataka.

    ** Please Note **

    Many people do not know this. But, should be told. If you are enrolled for "Quarantine Watch App", you should send Your selfie using App - Every hour. Other than between 10 PM to 7 AM - which is considered as sleeping time.

    When selfie is sent, it will record your location & time.

    If someone does not send Selfie, every hour - He will be taken from home & put into Institutional Quarantine.
