    I remember that when the corona was relatively new to the market (Indian media), they used to label the infected persons by numbers.
    Positive number 20 is a relative of positive number 14, positive number 45 is the son of positive 28. When the number started to increase, this khaidi numbers also disappeared.
    Now with 29th victim and 28th victim, might also stop when the count reaches to higher level which is bound to happen.

    India is much better.
    In some foriegn countries they release travel history of a person along with photo and they embarrass them. Government hands in that cannot be ruled out. In our place we do not get updates from local administration saying your next neighbor is positive and you need to be alert. But in foreign countries they will update all neighbors immediately along with pics of patients

    Sri, what about the notice outside the house saying that it is sealed down. What about arogya sety app telling nearby patients? Also which countries are you talking about. Please mention few names. Here it's so confidential that even the report is not given to the patient.
