    Only Sunday lockdown isn't enough to please Corona. Let's shut down at different time of the day, say mornings of Tuesday and afternoons on Monday and Wednesday and evenings on Friday and Saturdays. Thursdays can be a random closure. Maybe our craziness will convince Corona to leave us once and for all.

    If this is how we tackle Corona then I don't know how we will face future pandemics God forbid should any of the deadly diseases becomes easily transmittable via air or water - maybe we'll have to migrate to the North Pole.

    Lock Down for only Public not for MP, MLA and MLC's. Corona does not come for them They can Break rules who make rules for others. Davangere Mayor was having a his Birthday Celebrations on a Sunday which was a day of Lock Down. Now he has been tested Positive. Once yesterday I heard TV new's after that no one is talking about it which is kept a Secret. Now I heard in TV new's Lock Down will be continued on Sunday's in August also. What is the Logic behind this ? Other day before lifting the 7 day's Lock Down CM was saying several times there will not be any Lock Down anywhere henceforth with anywhere in Karnataka. Then why Sunday. Virus takes rest in week day's and appears only on Sunday's. People who go to work on weekends day's get one day Sunday holiday to do their purchases and take family out. If Lock Down is there what they will do ?

    These politicians/govt. people attend the get togethers/hifi birthday parties/ roaming here and there without masks....spread the infection among the people. And then it goes in a circle. All hospitals/labs/hotels/officials work hand in hand and their pockets get swollen up. Ordinary person will suffer and lose huge amounts and sometimes lose life. But, these people get top most treatment and come out and then give advice to people.... Otherwise why don't have fear of getting infected by covid and die??

    One or two days of lockdown will not help in curbing corona. This is also mentioned by doctors of AIIMS New Delhi.
    This is only a Nataka in Karnataka. Why only Sunday lockdown? I really cannot understand.

    useless and brainless lockdown by the administration. Instead of this, the number of testings should be increased and medicines have to be provided by doing door to door inspection.
