  1. ?‍♂️
    Again with the partiality to milk.
    I don’t get it. How and why is it so essential?
    I don’t know.

    Be safe . . .
    drink milk . . ,
    and STAY blessed everybody

  2. Sir,You also don’t forget,this method of lockdown(except 6am-10am) the no of corona patients are still increasing(the no may be fabricated), public are very frustated for losing job,money.Please tell me how do we survive(except govt emloyee) with this?

    • Lockdowns have shown results for sure. 4.14 lakhs cases per day in May 1st week has come down to 1.73 lakhs per day now. If not lockdown, is there any other ways to control this disease? Please advise.

      Job loss etc are of course the concerns for all… But what other option we have to survive this pandemic if no lockdown?

    • Mask can control only when people wear it, wear it properly and not below the chin or below the nose.

      Difficult to provide a police officer per citizen to ensure that the citizen wears masks properly and wears always when out.

      So the lockdown.

  3. Fed up and suffering because of the lockdowns???

    The lockdown order has been passed to be active to June 29th or 30th.
