    These people r waiting for the elections to get over, they r in standby mode on their toes to implement lockdown. Last year same thing happened. Election is the only important thing in our country. Common man is a liability.

    If the DC is so worried, he should lock himself and his family in his home and conduct all operations virtually. The rest of us are sick of these unnecessary restrictions (presuming that someone in the government is going to scream lockdown soon) and we need to carry on with our work. We in the private sector are not so lucky to get salaries and allowances paid on time without working hard for it.

    City is becoming smart but are we the smart people? These restrictions for communist chinese viruses, strains and vaccines what elite and communist chinese sleathily planned like nazis planned ? Forced to wear masks, home concentration camps with slow euthanizing ? covid injections ? Number hyping RTPCR tests to push lockdowns? Create divisions, vaccinated and unvaccinated ? Punish unvaccinated with all restrictions ? Inject vaccine after vaccine, booster after booster for the vaccinated ? Indirecly force vaccination ? or face no entry to Schools, colleges, work places, malls ? Everything happening before our eyes ? Bring out viruses and strains in different places around the world to force implement all of above?
