    I see lots of policemen without masks.. just speaking openly with public.. some wear masks for their neck.
    Some use it on their chin...
    Masks are dirty as usual.....
    This is the same way they operate with prisoners as well.
    When police men in other states and districts have contacted the disease, these people should also act carefully and be more responsible.

    No one is following any rules.. politicians, policemen... hospital personals as well.

    Garbage country..

    District administration totally slowed down the sanitizing and quarantine process. No sanitization for the lorries carrying fish and other goods espesially from Chennai resulted in corona on fish vendors. No night patrol or inspection on these activities because the officials don't fetch much in this. Carelessness and chaltha hai attitude of administration main cause of case burst in this area. Time to wake up for our representatives.
