    Lockdown for atleast 14 days is mandatory to control the infection. But poor people will die in hunger.. something should be done for them.. and no house is following the mask rule etc considering my own locality. Least bothered people are for the daily wages.
    And orthodocs people act like this CORONA doesnt even exist.
    14 days lock down is required to control the infection and people who are ill and can get discharged .. and beds will be available mostly for all.
    Incase if infection goes high this propaganda should be applied to control.
    Otherwise this state is soon to be like mumbai , delhi etc

    I hope government follows this

    Double check the test reports before declaring the figures! Do not declare the healthy and people with other ailments as Corona patients!

    There is and also no doubt that Udupi's coronavirus cases will increase day by day. The worst is yet to come if people don't follow the rules to control this deadly disease which has taken a toll many lives and ruined the economy of all around the world. It is for people to take situation of this to contain this before it is too late.

    Corona viruse incubation period is 14 days..How can a week lockdown solve this issue. Minimum 21 days lockdown is required only to reduce the daily count. Now its just survival of the fittest. Let god protect everyone.
