    Índia has a population of 135 crores , every year 90 lakh people die of various ailments , accidents etc. Covid deaths 3 lak 90 thousand in 1 year 5 months . What’s the percentage of mortality? Fuel prices rocketing as the government can only has this option to tax people as the economy is sinking. So many people are jobless, dying of hunger. Yet we believe in the lie. Small pox was a dangerous epidemic and if it was something like it then definitely lockdown not for this low mortality and flu like illness to promote dangerous pharmaceutical drugs. Wake up citizens, do some research, otherwise we will be locked every year.

    This way we will be locked down year long.. open shops from 3 to 6 evening. So no one will go out all day. Stop all celebrations meetings totally

    I am pessimistic about these numbers. Covid testing is done by some private institutions.

    If we allow only morning hours 6 am to 10 am cases will double shortly . The only solution to keep everything open till 2 pm so that rush would b less . This is witnessed by many places including Udupi.
