    Why don't increase testing ? Have free testing in containment zones , sanitize them , denotify the zones after the casee have stopped !effective lockdown along with increased testing can only save us! Tests should be done without any prescription and cost should be lowered

    All those whoever wish to go into self Lockdown can do so and remain safe at home! Those who wish to work by taking all the precautionary measures should be allowed to do so! After all locking down for months together and remaining at home is not a solution. Only old and sick people may prefer that! It is time to learn to live with this virus, find some remedy to treat it effectively.

    well said. .. more over people should be educated to quarantine themselves for any kind of sickness as a precautionary measure. That should be mandatory.
    Then you can get rid of corona.

    "The chief minister advised the concerned not to nurse the false notion that lockdown will address all the ills and concerns relating to coronavirus."

    CMs above statement says it all: that lockdown is not at all the solution to containing the virus; actually it will bring more pain to middle class & MSME businessmen in restarting their businesses! Many high end restaurants have already closed down in Mumbai! Those paying high rentals for shops will not be able to beat the shock! Nobody will dare give credit anymore! When bank moratorium ends, banks will hound debtors as most will not be able to repay the land due to loss of income for such a long time, builders are doomed as nobody will invest/speculate in property!

    If a 90 day nation wide lockdown did not stop the virus what will a 7 day lockdown do, except delay the inevitable for 7 days


    .If nature was allowed it's due course without any lockdown,testing and tracing,by now the number of new cases would have started coming down drastically,there would have been much fewer deaths as comorbidities would have been treated well, business would have continued without economic loss,there would have been no suicides due to fear and financial woes,and there would have been no hunger deaths.People are only spending for testing, hospitalization,sanitizers and what not.Children would not have lost a year of knowledge.India would have been a financial super power.
    The best option would have been to seal/restrict/test/quarantine the incomming passengers from abroad in January itself.We need not have imported the virus.

    Whatever has been said and done with regards to Corona Virus, be it symptoms, preventive care, about infection or about decease itself;
    In all, authorities have taken reverse stand, including by WHO, who are supposed to be guiding light to everyone.
    Initial days and months, phobia was created. Whoever defied the lock down orders, even for permitted activities were brutalized.
    But now cases have increased many fold, no medicine or vaccination is in sight, but still hasty unlocking orders are processed by the very authorities who imposed them.
    Therefore chaos prevailing not only here, but every corner of the world. Public are doubting whether it's an international conspiracy?
    But only one thing is common, whoever is taken to hospital, hefty medical bills are charged, bearing very few exceptions.

    Fortunate to have CM who can think independently at this hour. Most of the cases are asymptomatic and need to be home quarantined. The onus lies on each and every citizen to adhere to the regulations.
    Already more than 50% have lost their jobs or are on rotation. The next lock down will lead to "GREAT DEPRESSION".
    Easy for ones who have more than enough staked in banks or homes to say " we need a lock down", remember
    1. death is eminent in life.
    2. economy is on a down word spiral
    3. essentials are getting expensive
    4. mental state to the people are in ruins

    Wait patiently and cautiously for some more time. Our population is not that high as Bangalore. Most of our people adhere to the rules.
    FOR THOSE WHO DON'T: REPORT THEM TO THE AUTHORITIES. SEND PICS OR VIDEOS OF SUCH SLACKERS

    Dear all, as u all known henceforth we have to live with this virus, just like dengue, malaria, etc.. so by doing lockdown whether everything will be solved. Lockdown is not the only solution for stopping this virus. First we have to see the after effects of doing lockdown.
    As u all think by doing lockdown virus will go is absolutely foolishness. It will increase more. See the effect what the unplanned lockdown did to the ppl. Don't blindly follow in the footsteps of our unplanning govt both central and state.
    When the lockdown was done what our PM and CM and all the ministers did, but only a big zero.
    The virus can be contained by ourselves by taking necessary precautions like following SMS rule promptly.
    Please come of the mindset of lockdown and closing the area. In initial lockdown itself so many ppl have suffered like so many ppl lost their jobs, reductions in salaries, no food to eat, etc....
    Now in blore they have announced lockdown again but what will be the benefit from it nobody knows.
    Let us fight this virus by taking necessary precautions within ourselves.
    Please follow SMS rule and be safe.

    Right opinion sir....
    I agree with you....
    only precaution will prevent the disease...
    please convince the district administration...
    Lockdown is not the solution...
    there are unseen hands behind rising cases...
    prevent the private hospitals from treating covid patients...
    automatically positive cases will come down... i bet...

    Last time you were keep on extending lock down even though situation was not worst that time but now situation is very bad

    You were extending lock down that time according to the instruction of your Big Boss .

    This is what happens when we have Ineffecient administrators who do not know how to tackle situation.

    Then Why at Bangalore ?

    Cases are increasing uncontrollably. People won't listen. They don't know what is co-operation. If Lockdown is forced then only they will realize that there is a problem around.

    Come to blore to see how the lockdown will be followed.
    It is absolutely waste of doing when everything is available and ppl are moving freely.
    Majority of the ppl are against this lock down.
    It is of no use at all.
