    Dr. Harsh ward an people feel ...he is honest minister as health. I am impressed by his statement saying ...no one has right to force to take civic vaccine. He also said by taking it if the sick or normal person died government not responsible. I told one of my friend if any one force you to take covid vaccine, ask them to make a contract with few guarenters if incase he dies within the quoted or agreed period, compensation amount government has to sign & pay the said amount to as per agreed documented person there in within time frame. Can they do that...? You are free bird to decide. I am sorry for the valuable human dead bodies who floating in GANGA RIVER. It really saddened me. These were my humble feelings for those who gone to heaven & sadly died.

    Considering Karnataka state's 31 districts and Bangalore urban district new cases, the new cases of DK are really alarming. The state has 3979 and Bangalore urban district has 969 new cases. Population of Bangalore urban district is 4 times that of DK and also the area of DK is more than two times that of Bangalore Urban. After Bangalore, Mangalore and Udupi are considered highest educated districts. Udupi is now constantly maintaining low new cases. Unless some very strict covid discipline is imposed on DK, the new cases may not reduce. I heard in DK interior places, there are instances where 500 people attended roce ceremony and more than 1000 attended wedding reception. Covid rules are thrown to the wind in DK interior places, though Mangalore city is maintaining less number of cases.

    If politicians and responsible officials playing with reports & tests please stop it. All over India positivity rate is reduced even they do mores tests than DK. Why DK more cases?. All parties are same all want to make money. All party politicians are behind money., they don't work for human development or country development. Nothing going to change unless youth will change their mind and take leadership. We are many years behind comparing to others.
