Mangaluru: Random testing reveals 50 coronavirus cases in Ullal in a single day


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Jul 5: Coronavirus is continuing its barrage in Ullal area of the city. On Sunday, July 5, 50 people have tested positive for the virus, local media reports claimed.

Out of the 50 infected people, 48 are from the area which falls within the limits of Ullal city municipality. Most of these are people on whom random test was conducted.

More than 160 people have tested positive for coronavirus after a woman died due to the infection recently. Even then it has been found that people in the area are roaming without face mask protection.

Many were seen taking joyrides on vehicles avoiding the check points of police. Some people were even selling fish at Ullal junction.

Police have installed barricades in Thokkottu, Kuthar, Ullal, Kotekar, Beeri, Talapady, Deralakatte, Mudipu, Konaje and Asaigoli. The cops allowed only essential service vehicles like ambulance, milk van and newspaper delivery vans. Other people, who were just roaming around were sent back by the cops.

The roads in the border area between Karnataka and Kerala were deserted as there were no city buses.

    Seal down Ullal town with only allowing essential services and supplies so that the spread can be restricted. It's residents of Ullal need to decide and make choices to save lives.

    If eachone takes care of himself and strictly adheres to personal safety norms then only community spread of the virus could be controlled. Otherwise there is no point in Lockdown for 14 days or 28 days or on Sundays! Negligence is the main cause, Govt cannot do everything to fight the virus unless we honestly cooperate with them!

    The question is why to test? You will get as many cases as it’s flu season now.
    Body produces antibodies and there is always a chance to show positive. The death rates are 0.001 percent. There is nothing to be scared off. Herd immunity is on now.
    All will go well

    Herd immunity is not effective. Look at how many people died and are still dying in Italy and us.

    Exactly!At least 20 -50%of us may already be positive and may not be knowing about it and as the death rate is extremely low now we should forget Corona and concentrate on better things.In other countries the death rate is higher because they have less immunity/cross immunity.

    This is community transmission, nothing to be worried about, the next phase will be "herd immunity" ,then the virus will disappear.THE END.......(of the virus)

    Herd immunity is an imaginary concept.
    The virus is there from November last year probably before that. No where in the world, the so called herd immunity is achieved. Whichever country has contained the virus, it is because of strictly implemented lockdown policies and awareness among people.

    Hope you know what you are talking about. Herd immunity is attained either by vaccines or when a large number of people gets the disease and recovers from it. Experts estimates this number should be 70% of the population ( Source : Mayo clinic). That means 945 million Indians have to get the disease to develop herd immunity. Considering the death rate of last month, 2.8%, a total of 26.46 million of Indians might die while this herd immunity comes into play. Vaccines are the only solution for this issue.

    Already 30 -50 % of the population might be infected and recovered, they do not know about it because they have not tested,and I have mention herd immunity as the next phase,and by that time it will cross 70%. True vaccine is the only known solution but if we look at the rules for clinical trials, unless we fast track some unnecessary trials it will take a long time to market a vaccine, by that time corona may disappear The death rate would be far less than mentioned if all asymptomatic were tested.So the scenario is not as bad as people think, except for the economic/ financial part.

    Do random tests in Attavar, Falnir, Kankanady, Pandeswar, Pumpwell, Hampankatta, i bet u there will be more than 500 positive.. situation is dangerous in mangalore.. those 500 can spread to 1000 more amd it goes on .. if not controlled, mangalore may see 1 lakh cases which is 15% as 7 lakh is popualtion of mangalore

    Government can open public quarantine centers to keep all asymptotic and mild positive cases at one place. So that easy to take care of them..
    Hospitals cannot accommodate so many people
    And home quarantine may be difficult

    Better to block nethravathi bridge so that people don't come from and go to ullal. They all can buy goods from thokottu if this type of transmission happens in mangalore city it will be big problem

    It is difficult to understand how did they get infection?
    Any kasargod links?
    Or infected ullal policemen were the first source of transmission?
    Please find out.

    I think when you have 50 positives in a random test in the area, it's gonna be next to impossible to find out primary sources. Instead test everyone around those people.

    Why naming Kasaragod for inefficiency of local govt? Interstate movements are restricted. 0 death case in Kasaragod unlike Mangalore. Dont end up blaming, learn from your mistakes
