    Dont do unscientific lockdown/Weekend lockdowns...Even after 2 weekend lockdowns in Our state, then why cases are exponential high? Close all schools and colleges for 1 month because of cluster outbreak in schools and colleges.. Also ban all gatherings for 1 month or 2. Put police in public places to monitor whether people are following covid norms... Also police should announce in mic as 'Omicron is more dangerous virus' in cities and villages so that people will fear and follow covid norms.. Looks like 70 percent cases are showing false positive for Asymptomatic...If govt put more police in public place and if police monitored people strictly then cases and deaths would have been reduced. Due to shortage of medicines, wrong treatment and late treatments, more deaths are happening.
