Numbers are increasing everyday, making new records. How to control them ?



Anandarao Devalkar

The surge in numbers are a matter of concern. The cause and effects are known. The already strained health care system cannot take any further load. The preventive measures needs to be drilled among our people. Sanitise, mask and social distance ßhould be followed rigourously and moving around should be at barest minimum. Only discipline can save.



Balaji Ramana

The scariest thing that seems to be is that in our area, the recoveries are so many and so fast, that one tends to suspect it. If the patients are discharged without proper testing, our recovery percentage may improve, but it poses grave danger to others.



K Mohan

With 60 per cent recovery rate there is a hope for survival and ICMR is also speeding up vaccine find



sree singh

C S Maurya

Maharashtra is paying the price for the most inefficient Govt.



Charanjit Singh

HappyTimes User

In spite of extended lockdown, the cases are rising. What will happen once the trains start functioning completely? Has anyone thought about it?

尽管封城延长了,但确诊病例仍在上升。一旦火车开始完全运营,会发生什么? 有人想过吗?



thank god for blessing Indians with good immunity..otherwise we would be dealing with much more dead bodies



nanjapa bidanda

We are going to beat Russia and get into bronze medal position. Stop inter state travel, and gatherings of more than 4 people, enforce social distancing, make masks mandatory, and then see how pandemic comes under control.2
