    Please stay home. Order everything online. You get even fish, meat all groceries at ur doorstep. Complete lockdown is if no usage. Partial as of now going on is fine.
    Stop all gatherings, if any party be it resort, bday party etc pls fine them heavily. Please love your environment. Lets accept the fact that 2020 - WORLD IS ON REST, STAYING HOME YEAR. ACCEPT THE FACT. KEEP CLEANING YOUR HOUSES WITH DETTOL. Dont peak into your neighbours.
    You dont have anybody to talk then do video calls, watch movies on Netflix.,amazon prime videos etc. You feel you will be lazy, then do gardening, clean your house fans, ACducts, spider webs, do lil squats.
    Dont encourage community gatherings. If someone inviting you for wedding just courier them beautiful gift, dont hop n go for wedding to eat biryani, control your apetite.
    If u want free biryani watch youtube n prepare, if lazy order online.
    Just look at this current world. God has made everything easy peasy.He has made this world ready for pandemic, we just have to be at home.
    If you are in someother city without jobs, then come back, but follow strict quarantine for minimum 14days.If with job, then be happy dont plan to come. Be safe Behome.

    Connect yourself with God. We were so busy that he pulled our strings back forth. Ask forgiveness. He dont like us to forget him.

    There is a need to establish spacious Covid Care centers in D.K to cater to infected who need treatment for Asymptomatic symptoms or mild symptoms. Is the District Administration planning such Covid care centers in D.K? This way, only severely symptomatic or critical patients will need to get admitted to hospitals as the total number of beds in hospitals are limited.

    Again I am stressing on a call for strict lockdown without which we are going to see a lot of suffering. The administration seems to be taking a risk that too on the life of senior citizens in our family.

    Anyone is free to lock themselves in their homes and come out only after 30, 60 or 70 days. This way you and the senior citizens in your family will be safe.
