    India have crossed the 5 lakhs tally of Covid19 infection... Community transmission of this highly contagious plague has disabled our medical infrastructures. We have to be cautious n very vigilant, else the consequences will be disastrous for the nation !!

    The organization which arranged the flight should own the complete responsibility. Not just eating profits !

    After reading the article, I am of the opinion, Charted flight was cancelled because DC Managalore was unable to make arrangements for Hotel Quarantine...

    I am against this Hotel Quarantine from day one....its waste of money of passengers and efforts of District Administration....

    In my opinion....Bajpe Police should take all these passengers in their nice and beautiful Blue 'Police Buses' to their houses and allow them Volunterely quarantine themselves in their homes for 14 days...if they are found roaming outside within 14 days appoint a Police Sentry outside home for 14 they do for Ministers houses....and collect money from them for guarding them...

    We should give them a chance to Volunterely comply....if they don't comply forced quarantine option always available....but it should be LAST option , not FIRST....

    These politicians will never help anybody without any profit. In this social service also they may ask for money.

    Kerala is the best. Kerala Government facilitated safe return of their own citizens, citizens from neighboring states. Had the privilege to be a repatriated on flight from Africa to Cochin arranged for Keralites, which arrived on 25 June 2020. The guidelines are stipulated clearly, no confusion and all handling the flights/ arrival procedures are very professional. They have busses arranged to the various districts. The health officer at the Airport arrange safe passage of 9 Mangaloreans to Talapady border and then the chaos starts!!!!
