    IMHO, the transmission has reached to an exponential stage where all these measures will be counterproductive! It's high time people get back on track, with available safety measures, to earn their daily bread!

    The above is only a very personal opinion based on my knowledge and information and not an advice of any sort!

    DC G Jagadeesha, I fully agree with your new guidelines for containment zones. In fact it should be for other districts as many of them are not following the said guidelines. That is the reason the COVID-19 cases are going up day-by-day. The guidelines given to the people should be adhered to if this ready disease causes more damage.
