    "District Health Officer also said that the police have been asked to register cases against people floating fake information." This is a cold threat to freedom of expression and to those who may speak truth. Voice of truth cannot be silenced for ever....!

    D.K. really lagging behind in treating corona patients, inspite of its claim having so many big hospitals and so many genius Doctors. Its good that govt has atlast realised this and taken steps to improve. Good move from Govt.

    districts of athibuddhivanthas, Dakshina Kannada and Udupi are the most corrupted districts in our state after Bengaluru.

    Though literate people are here, they just want to go to gulf and other western countries because they know our state and district is corrupt. They are happy to visit this place just once in a year or once in two or three years.

    So the sad state is that gowdas and ullus from all over India can be seen ruling the extra brilliant people of these districts. Basically ullus are ruling the brainy people. what a farce?

    Lord, we pray for those who need ongoing medical treatment who are forced to wait at this time.

    God, please watch over their health and help them to stay positive and patient.

    We pray that we overcome this global crisis and that after this pandemic, we build a more just and humane world.

    Amen.

    Billing
    Cremating....
    Everything has gone for a Toss !
    The price for taking it easy will be defintely heavy !
    Why did the Health Minister say... God's Mercy?
    These experts are needed in Bengaluru also... if you ask me...

    First ,we have to study, what study these so called experts are going to do
    Maybe its just a casual govt paid visit for some fresh rainy air in Mangalore ..
    The govt never provides facilities to Mangalorean .Udupi regions ..they simply are here to milk the hard earned money of our coastal people.
    They know that we are the most law abiding and honest citizens who pay their electricity and water bill son time everytime ..

    I'm telling you officers, please get ID of patients verified. People in our surroundings are all hale and healthy. From where the patients came from ? Fabricated records ?? Just a few areas were marked as sealed down initially but after that no any indication/information. Well, except Ullal. No offense intended.

    There shouldn't be same data applied to different names but an ID(say, Aadhaar number) is not available.
