    If lockdown is extended, it means that the incompetent BJP government has lost the Mahabharata war for a second time.

    Numbers don't mean anything unless in a context in the case of covid that number is known as positivity rate which means out of those samples being tested how many come back as positive, it has to be less than 5% to be considered under control. Currently Karnataka has a positivity rate of about 25%. So i am not celebrating just yet.

    By 24th the number of cases should come down to 50/100 and then we hope that lock down be withdrawn. However we should be get prepared for the third wave.

    First of all praying almighty to rest the departed soul in peace. Government need to increase the testing process on symptomatic as well as on asymptomatic patients. The current situation looks like scary , and future looks like very critical . The schools run by institutions , should be used as the isolation wards . Parallelly vaccination drive should be intensified and jabs should be done without any delay in between stipulated period. Then only situation will be controlled . Otherwise we have to move on more lockdowns and more casualities.
