    I am shocked and anguished at what is happening in an educated district. Total collapse of health system. Many of my friends are suffering. Some hospitals don't have stock of medicines. Who is the administration trying to fool? This is just getting worse. Black marketing of essential medicines have started even here. Hope they wake up from their sleep and do some work. Impose a strict lockdown , don't allow anyone out or breaking the chain is difficult. Hope at least now these do something now and save people. Economy is alive only when people are healthy.

    Please distribute the collected fine among the needy families of the people who died due to corona. It would be like a contribution/help from the entire district to show solidarity and that we care for them.
