    The Corona virus is very intelligent ,just before the slated announcement is made the number count rises. Next day it goes down. Maybe i am absolutely wrong ..how come other districts are faring better ? Is it because people are really cautious in other districts ? And DK people are careless ? As compared to Eg KAlaburgi ? I doubt the numbers are in relation to testing done .. This is the problem of being efficient and honest ..maybe ,I am not sure.
