    It is clear that the situation in Dakshina Kannada is getting worse and it is obvious that The Government is imposing restriction to ensure SAFETY. Fresh Covid cases have skyrocketed in the District and obviously all concerned have to take aqequate care to safe the lives of people. It is expedient that the public cooperate with The Government.

    I only wish people were as sensible as you are Sir. The protocol violation is rife across the country without any exception. People simply fail to adhere to basic message of "wear face mask, wash your hands and maintain social distance"

    I believe the DC and the administration should impose no entry for children below 15years in malls, shopping centers, religious places, functions in the district. As lot of people bring children to these places as if they have come for picnic. Daijiworld editor old forward this message to DC and administration.
