    Total lack of policy and bad management by state government and respective district administrations. Cases and deaths are under reported. Protocols and quarantines rules are changing on daily basis to confuse people. Intermittent weekend lock downs with pains but no gains. No quarantine for exposed doctors and exposed doctors are infecting more and more. No effective management of quarantine or home isolation. Porous check posts and officials not aware of what they are supposed to do with objectives. A frightened medical community with a tendency to run away when war is declared and who quite often forgets the commitment to their noble profession. Substandard infrastructure and equipments. Shortage of drugs, quality PPE Kits and N95 Masks. Entire healthcare delivery trenched in neck deep corruption. Lack of political will power to reign private hospitals. Discrimination of people to cattle class, middle class and super class in even providing health care during pandemic. And greedy people and few politicians to encash misery of people. The writings on the wall is getting clear day by day. It seems, we are not satisfied nothing less than a super spread. Worst times are still to come.....!

    Death rate is high in D.K. , whereas Udupi covid hospital is handling cases effectively. Death rate is very low. Hats off to Udupi DC.

    who is managing covid 19 challenges effectively. Its time to D.K. to look into the covid management and treatment to boost the confidence level of D.K people.

    @ kevin You want women to donate bangles for a cause ?? doesn't make any sense and completely out of scope. Why don't you ask movie celebrities , political celebrities to donate they got more riches stacked elsewhere.

    Why no random testing throughout the city. Get vendors in all major markets in Mangalore random tested. This the only way to control its spread. Once the lockdown is open random test must be done. Otherwise how will we know if community spread is there or not if only cases with systoms are tested
