why r ppl stupidly traveling. stop air travel. airport authorities should have made through checking before letting people leave airport premises. its lack of proper management for this disaster.
The economy of India is already in shambles, a few crore deaths by crona will bring the economy India below the economy of Ethiopia. happy sign for us, let celebrate the crona virus zindabaad.
A large number of persons in EARLY stages of infection can escape detection at airports as they won't be running high temperature. So the danger of spread is very real. Only summer heat can save India. But summer onset delayed this year.
I request all people in India should follow what W H O says, such as washing hands, using masks, etc, specially school children are not using these precautions just due to show their beauty, and, or, unconfortability, but they haven't realised what is going to be happen in the future, so the educational institutions should strictly order students to follow the rules, it's good for them, their family members, and their co students as well
Guys! A fellow citizen died of Covid-19. Please respect the dead soul. It can happen to any one of us too. may not be Mecca or Rome, New york also is at equal risk
