    The entire problem was created because Chaiwala was in deep slumber who woke up to the reality very late..... Kerala has been effectively tackling these and the rising cases are because the Chaiwala did not have the common sense to effect movement of 'Guest workers' and NRIs during the lock-down period, even after repeated requests.

    Of the 1979 flights under Vande Bharat till date mission 519 landed in Kerala.... Secondly Centre which claimed that Railway has the capacity to complete the movement of 'Guest workers' to their home town within six days could not do even in six months..... The effects of these will obviously be there and we are prepared to deal with it and overcome it too.....

    Majority of community transmission in Kasargod was found to have mangalore connection, as the infected Persons are mostly those who go daily to get vegetables and fishes from mangalore to kasaragod , hence the action to close down market and also streamline the vehicles that brings goods from market so that they can be tested after entry.

    Good decision by the concerned authorities to close down major markets in Kasargod. There is no other option as people are still not following the do's and don'ts which has caused the increased cases of Coronavirus. Many are taking this deadly disease easily.
