    Ppl suggesting lockdown plz tell me how much time 3 week, years etc be clear, Lockdown or not will not solve problem u need clear principal of safe distance, wearing mask , proper hygiene etc as rules for maybe next few years , the answer is no vaccine is available and until one ur argument doesn't have a chance , lockdown has made only illegal business thrive and only those ppl want it in more numbers and real businesses r getting closed, ppl shud improve their immunity then they have chance to survive other than that lockdown is not a solution bcoz cases to drop or even come to zero is a myth , when u open the lockdown ppl will travel and again the cycle of more cases, ppl shud worry more now with lockdown even suicide rates r going up. It's a flu so let it be like that and ppl more worried for that are not worried for ppl dieing out of hunger go check out how many ppl die out if that daily , the lockdown won't bring cases to low but surely increase the suicide rates.

    The problem erupted because of allowing people to come from Maharashtra and gulf without proper checking.
    Everything was in control. Suddenly explosion happened in number of covid cases.
    People also don't understand the seriousness.
    Hope everything gets normal .

    It is high time that Mangalore / affected towns in DK are also brought under a strict lockdown for at least 10 days to minimise incremental growth.

    Looks like the life of people living in Bangalore is precious and life of Mangalore people is cheap. Shows the incompetence of Dakshina Kannada representatives who cant even voice their opinion for the people of mangalore. What are they waiting for. For all the people to get infected? Shame on our representatives

    Why some of our leaders are claiming success in tackling the pandemic while several thousands are being affected every day and death due to covid is being increased. Now the health care systems are being proved inadequate.

    With daily untraceable cases district administration still says no community transmission. Can they explain which category those people fall into. A lockdown or temporary shutdown of non essential activities should be imposes asap.

    Complete lock down for minimum 3 weeks is the need of hour. Authorities concerned should look at the forecast and do not regret later. Cases and deaths are increasing day by day. People cannot stay home when everything is open like shops, offices, factories etc. We are forced to go out. If its total Lockdown we all can stay safe at home.

    Ppl cannot stay home if not lockdown is a irresponsible statement so what keep lockdown for a year then , there is no vaccine so lockdown or not doesn't make difference , then u again allow ppl from abroad and again lockdown what is this a joke , let things be as it is ppl are now dying out of sucide and other depression so that doesn't affect u , only ppl r concerned about their selfish gains all business r closing ppl have mouth to feed, loans etc , ur lockdown only help illegal business to survive and only those ppl want more lockdown rest it has no impact on bring cases to zero , safe distance, mask ,hygiene and your immunity will only be deciding factor for ur life so work on that , lockdown will not feed you unleas ur politicians or govt servant.
