    Out of 130 reports, 90 test positive.
    When there was lockdown, and the mangalore people were forced to sit inside their home, it was naturally under control.
    Now when the Government has allowed relaxation for the betterment of people, these bums cannot follow any damn precautions and end up spreading the virus..
    This shows that the people are the worst... only when they are forced ,they follow..
    They dont have the unmost responsibility to even be cautious..

    Only of the people decide this disaster can be reduced.
    But I dont see that happening.

    Use the masks properly and use sanitizer and follow rules...
    To all the people, customers, shop keepers, business owners, medical staff,police...... every body...
