    Now is the time to let people remain in their own homes unless they show symptoms that require hospital treatment or ICU monitoring with breathing difficulties.
    Most patients are getting cured in Mumbai in their own homes monitored by their doctors as no beds are available as they are filled with asymptomatic patient who never need any beds.
    As the present infection is lowered from Tiger to Wild Cat by CDC & the revised mortality rate has comedown below than that of Flu Infections WHO needs to lower the present infectious virus should be labelled as Epidemic rather than Pandemic Category. If they do so then all these seal downs or lock downs can be expedited & normal life can be restored through out the country soon.

    More people incrasing the density of population will affect the water table. physical spaces will shrink as more people scramble in a given area. when we were young we saw green paddy fields and coconut tress. because of increased populace serenity is gone forever. only land price have increased making it difficult to own even a 5 cents land. hope now you understand that it will affect me and you as well.

    I am a family friend of a highly educated joint family (Brahmins) of 17 people in Udupi district,. Parents, three sons and several grand children and domestic helpers in outhouse. Quite well to do family, living in great harmony. It is pleasure to watch such family. Do not talk about family planning without knowing humanity!

    Family planning is humanity. As human populace increases they will slowly and gradually encroach animal habitats.

    Corona is now a part & parcel of our life.
    Every Housing Society in Mumbai has one or two patients who are being discretely treated at Home.
    There are no medicines. The Patient is isolated & given foods to boost his immunity.
    Within two weeks the Patient is fit & fine ...

    I am sorry for that choice of word Mahmood Sir...
    I really am...
    Was taken aback from the Magnitude of attack of the Virus on one family and an Exclamation of Agony... More than anything else.
    Really concerned about Ullal, many of my relatives, well wishers live there.
    Wish all well and this family in particular speedy recovery.
    Yes God is the ultimate saviour.
    I have my grouse at the administrators though who could have been more careful.
    Regards.
