  1. If any one with authority reads this . . .
    PLEASE learn from the past. We cannot trust that a person ordered to quarantine themselves will do so like an obedient child. Please enforce quarantine at a government appointed lodge etc or a hotel of their choosing (if any have been assigned for quarantine purpose). Or have a patrol/guard stationed outside their house/flat. Whichever is cost efficient. This seems cruel but it ‘s for the greater good. I am not calling everyone a liar but there are those select few that don’t care about others. So better to be safe than sorry.

    Be safe,
    and STAY blessed everyone
