    Unlocking should've been done step by step long time back. All this days these fools were sleeping and now suddenly woke up and opening everything in hurry without any proper precautionary plans. And between all this our state medical committee dumb head is eagerly advising to open schools and risk the lives of children who don't have any vaccination. These dumbs should know that many of companies were all employees are 18 (who have vaccination to safeguard themselves from virus) are still preferring to continue with work from home system. Why Karnataka govt is always in confusion 🤦🤷🙆
