    It is prudent not to wear any Jewelry even a smallest one at this time and may be for the next 100 years.
    Precaution is always better than solution.
    Going to ATM is another risk, unless the person goes along with at least 2 persons to be bodyguards.
    But importantly just forget about gold or any jewelry. It is better to keep it somewhere safe.
    Or put in Gold Bonds that the Central government has come up with.

    Few days ago a temple Hindi was robbed & three priests were mercilessly killed by burglars! Day before a house in Surathkal was robbed of 50 lacs cash & 200 gm gold!

    All this is the result of depression in economy & joblessness! Many daily wagers, those with no jobs have already started starving & begging!
    The worst is yet to come when moratorium collection starts! Lots of people who bought houses taking heavy loans are bound to be homeless due to delinquency!I

    Even storing money, gold at home is an invitation to professional burglars!

    Joseph Belman I think you misunderstood total.He warned what is to come in future and to take care not to wear ornaments when you go out alone to senior citizens or how your richness can vanish in corona time .More burglers and thieves are increased these days.

    I feel sorry for the past who was robbed of her gold chain and that too in broad daylight. This is due to poor economy, loss of jobs, and for many reasons people are making up for the loss. The worst is yet to be seen. I hope the thief is found and the poor woman recovers her chain.

    With economy under depression, closures of 1000s of MSMES, job losses, daily wagers jobless, robberies & burglaries will be the order of the day!

    Atleast 50-70 small, medium & lodgings have permanently shut down only in DK, imagine the amount of job losses on in hotel industry!

    I fear the worst when creditors hound those unable to pay EMIs after moratorium!

    Better wear imitation jewelry, looks better than original.Keep real gold safe at home or bank locker.

    Imitate jewellery too has problems sometime. Many times problems have occurred who wore imitation jewellery. Wear any artificial threads... Black suits to all... also some artificial ear rings and all but not in gold color. Golden color tempts the robbers to rob... and especially during this financial problems because of covid...
