    Jossey ,
    This infection is not yet fully understood, many cases of reinfection after getting cured are being reported, many die suddenly even after many months due to different complications which doctors are still not aware of; in this scenario, opening up of places where crowds congregate in congested places multiplies the risk of cluster infections manifold times!

    Protocol is only on paper, nobody is following it; go to any pub or bar you will see how Protocol is flouted; to entice customers bars even allow smoking inside congested bars full of customers!

    We should be ready for another wave of infection very soon!

    Only divine intervention can save our people!
