Open up the lock down, restart the economy and allow people to travel. It was a HOAX and a global SCAM. Governments, media and people got fooled.
Man has to bow down. Ego kills.
The way this govt has destroyed the livelihood of millions .... i dont think they intend to open the economy.... they dont have t guts!!!
You are surely a non indian!
stupid everyday we are getting over 1500 cases on being in lockdown imagince what would have happened if there was no lockdow,and you are still cribbing about economy
6K deaths in IRAN while INDIA only lost 1K shows our success.With effective VACCINE we can SURVIVE&save ECONOMY too.
If the lock down is lifted and the train services started immediately, just in 48 hours Mumbai will see 1000 or even more times of infections and death. That is the real condition. Just because of the lock down, it is simply put to hold from spread and once lock down lifted, God only can Mumbai & Maharashtra. There is hardly any space to maintain social distance, the train travel surely is a nightmare for every commuter
40% increase in cases in last 10 days despite lock down. Clearly, people are not still not ready to comply. Govt. should impose national emergency, Put complete country in 100% strict lock down for next 1 month at-least. Anyone found violating rules, administration should declare shoot at sight orders. The pandemic danger is very worse by each day.
The 40% did not increase in the last 10 days. It had spread rapidly all over India even before the lockdown, only now the numbers are coming up..
All over the world Corona is confined to some areas. How come it spread all over the country in India?
Until fundamentalists are not forced to adhere to government guidelines all the efforts are futile
The lockdown was to buy time to prepare. Now next week they will experiment by removing the lockdown. There will be a spike. So those who are forced to go out for work will be in trouble. Those who can afford to Stay at home should not venture out now
