    India and karnataka should learn Covid Management from Pakistan .. No tests ,No Cases.Everything is fine. what matters henceforth is how many are hospitalised and how many have recovered or otherwise. Be Strict on Masks ,social distancing, large gatherings and vaccination. Another lockdown or the 3rd wave is a doom for India. if there are plans of another lockown ,give tax,free electricity and and free food for all(stop APL/ BPL business) at their door steps. The former rich are now poor .All those people who have the ability to generate money are made to hide in a foreign country being charged with tax evasion etc . I would say call them back ..allow them to run their business ..efficiently Atleast they will give employment to a few . Let there be more money circulation. We all know the govt has done some great things .. Please stop chest beating about issues that are done . Look forward ..India needs Jobs & economic activity now.
