    Mumbai Kannadigas getting panicked. The people already arrived with positive cases and cured should come forward and tell their stories, how they cured, what treatment given. Media should give more importance to cured patients stories instead giving tension to general public with breaking Corona positive cases.

    Our population is 130 crores and it is not easy to provide food and other essentials.We have our own responsibilities as citizens to follow rules and regulations.Peopke ignore social distancing,sanitization and compulsory masks. Quarantine rules are not followed.Along with the Government we are also duty- bound to tackle the virus which will be there for another six months atleast.

    Next two months crucial..
    If these patients get cured and discharge from hospital without infecting any new people, then it would be great!

    Please make corona free India soon..

    Very serious matter. India is moving towards pethatic condition. Government says we have to live with this virus. Yes, true, but till the people habituate , is it not Government responsibility to protect the atmosphere????? Government imposed lockdown, and millions of people locked. Some locked inside homes, some locked without jobs, some locked without food, some locked without medicine and others locked down the graves.
    If government planned prior to imposing Lockdown, make arrangements to feed the people with food, shelter and with basic needs and medicine sufficient for certain period of time.
    Lock down was sucessful but implementation was wrong as the de- monitisation was imposed without proper alternatives.
    Now the ministers boldly says ban Maharashtra migrants.
    Don't they know they are also the citizens of the same country? Where will they go? They are not going out of country . They are coming to their own home town.
    Let the minister know very well and stop those are coming across the border first and then torture our own brothern.
    Shane on our leaders

    On average, 10% of all people entering seem to be testing positive. Hopefully, the district can manage the situation without overwhelming our healthcare system. There are so many elders and non-covid cases in need of constant care already.
